Coolidge Corner Theatre will host “Stand with Ukraine Through Film,” an afternoon at the theater that will include one of the first U.S. theatrical screenings of “The Guide,” a 2014 Ukrainian film set against the backdrop of Soviet efforts to exterminate Ukrainians in the 1930s.
The event will include introductions with Massachusetts Senate Majority Leader Sen. Cynthia Creem and Massachusetts State Rep. Tommy Vitolo, as well as music by a Ukrainian piano trio featuring Liubomyr Senyshyn on violin, Margaret Boswell Senyshyn on piano and Sebastain Baverstam on cello; the trio will play selections by current Ukrainian composers.
Following the screening of “The Guide,” a Ukrainian cinema expert from Columbia University, Dr. Yuri Shevchuk, will lead a brief conversation with the audience. Oles Sanin, the film’s highly regarded Ukrainian director, has provided a five-minute video to introduce the film.
This event is a fundraiser to support Ukraine relief efforts. Tickets are set at variable pricing starting at $25 and all box office proceeds from the fundraiser will go directly to providing humanitarian assistance to the Ukrainian people. Funds from “Stand with Ukraine Through Film” will be sent to Human & Civil Rights Organizations of America Inc., which will distribute the money to organizations helping in Ukraine and nearby countries.+ More... - Less...
