This two-part public forum explores the historical development of Ukraine’s culture manifested in art and film. Russia’s invasion in Ukraine on February 24, 2022 has upended the international law, challenged the rights of existence of a sovereign state, and brought a humanitarian crisis. Our goal in this public forum is to offer the documentary film-maker Sergei Loznitsa and scholars of Ukrainian art to present their work and voice their position against Russia’s war.
