      FIRECROSSER a Film by Mykhailo Illyenko

      THE FIRECROSSER, director Mykhailo Illienko, 2012. Feature narrative, 105
      min. Ukraine's official entry for the Oscar consideration in the Best
      Foreign Language Film category. This melodrama is inspired by the real-life
      story of one Ivan Datsenko (Ivan Dodoka in the film), native of the village
      of Chernechyi Yar in central Ukraine. He becomes a fearsome fighter pilot
      during World War Two, earning the highest military distinction bestowed by
      Stalin. He escapes first from a Nazi and then Soviet concentration camps,
      flees to Canada, where 'suspend your disbelief' Datsenko allegedly becomes
      the chieftain of an Iroquois tribe. This is the first in years Ukrainian
      film that received a national distribution and enjoyed an unprecedented
      box-office success in Ukraine.

      Yuri Shevchuk (Lecturer of Ukrainian Language and Culture, Department of
      Slavic Languages, Director of the Ukrainian Film Club, Columbia University)
      "Soviet Film and Stalin's War of Peasants, 1920-1930"

      The destruction of independent peasantry by the Bolshevik regime was
      orchestrated with an unparalleled efficiency both in terms of the actual
      physical elimination of millions branded kulaks and the moral justification
      of the mass murder to the largely acquiescing public opinion within the
      Soviet Union and abroad. The lecture discusses the role Soviet film played
      in the preparation and execution of one of the greatest mass murders of
      European civil population whose scale and consequences are still to be fully
      appreciated. The lecture presentation is based on the research of a wide
      body of documents and motion pictures of the period and is richly
      illustrated with film clips.
      Registration required
      Room 108, North Building, Munk School of Global Affairs (1 Devonshire Place)

      Lukasz Jasina (Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Poland; Petro Jacyk
      Visiting Scholar) "Poles, Ukrainians and Film: Shared History, Manipulation
      and the Truth"

      Cinema could be considered today's Biblia pauperum, or a poor-man's bible,
      one using pictures and images to convey incontrovertible truths. Films offer
      many people a source of historical knowledge that is more influential than
      books, journals, or formal education at school or university. Recent Polish
      and Ukrainian movies such as "With Fire and Sword," "In Darknesss," and
      "Metropolitan Andrey" do offer audiences a certain historical truth, but
      more serve as a medium for manipulating and re-narrating history. This
      presentation will discuss the mechanism of creating "moving pictures" of
      shared Polish and Ukrainian history in contemporary cinematography.
      Registration required
      Room 108, North Building, Munk School of Global Affairs (1 Devonshire Place)

      Sponsored by the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, and the
      Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine.
