Buoyed by the support of new cultural institutions, Ukraine’s national cinema has blossomed since 2014, developing into an important outlet for political and artistic discourse. This new cinematic culture celebrates Ukrainian nationhood and identity, two themes awoken by the Revolution of Dignity. As such, contemporary Ukrainian filmmakers are increasingly tackling difficult themes in the country’s recent history, both as a product of and guide for the cultural zeitgeist and national conversation. How can Ukrainian film navigate the challenges presented by its rapid growth? How can this robust cinematic culture reinforce Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic trajectory?

Vladislav Davidzon, nonresident fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center, moderates a discussion featuring Adrian Karatnycky, nonresident senior fellow at the Eurasia Center, Regina Maryanovska-Davidzon, producer at REAL Pictures, Oleksandra Yakubenko, head of the international cooperation department at the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation, and Vladimir Yatsenko, Ukrainian representative to Eurimages at the Council of Europe. Melinda Haring, deputy director of the Eurasia Center, welcomes.
