The press service of the Oleksandr Dovzhenko National Center reports that the program The Ukrainian Miracle will be presented at the largest 32nd Pordenone Silent Film Festival.
The program includes eight Ukrainian silent films, restored and dubbed, commissioned by Dovzhenko Center in 2011-13: Borotba Veletniv 1926 (The Sturggle of Giants), Sumka Dypkuriera 1927 (Bag of a Diplomatic Courier), Dva Dni 1927 (Two Days), Nichny Viznyk 1929 (Night Cabby), Arsenal 1929, Shkurnyk 1929 (Self-Seeker), Khlib 1930 (Bread), and Zemlia 1930 (Earth).
For the first time the program of Ukrainian silent films will be presented so widely as a part of the most authoritative specialized festival. The talks with the director of the festival David Robinson on the organization of the screening of Ukrainian films in Pordenone began at the last year’s forum, in which Ukraine presented its film, and were successfully completed early this summer.
The films included in the program will be screened to the accompaniment of “live” music performed by DakhaBrakha band, Yurii Kuznietsov, Port Mone, Marcin Pukaluk, and others.
This year’s silent film festival in Pordenone will take place from October 5 through 12.
