Newly Restored Unknown Ukrainian Silent Film

You Won't See It Anywhere Else

TWO DAYS

1927, director Heorhiy Stabovyi

There are only so many silent films extant today. It is an extremely rare occurrence that an unknown silent film is unearthed in the archives. This is exactly one such occasion. "Two Days" is completely unknown in the world. This psychological drama is about a father at odds with his own son who sides with the Bolshevik revolution while his father remains faithful to the old order. The political awakening that the father undergoes under the influence of the stormy events of the Russian Soviet re-conquest of Ukraine in 1918-1920 will move even the most indifferent of hearts.

When: September 28, 2017, Thursday, 7:30 PM

Where: 709 Hamilton Hall, Columbia University

Yuri Shevchuk will introduce the film and lead the post-screening discussion. In Ukrainian with English subtitles. Free & open to public.
