MY BABUSHKA - SEARCHING UKRAINIAN IDENTITIES
directed by Barbara Hammer
YEAR
2001

53 MINS, Color

Barbara Hammer, who has been called "the Stanley Kubrick of documentary
filmmakers," travels to the former Soviet Union to investigate her
maternal grandparents, and in the process discovers a region of emerging
identities and cultural differences. As it gradually opens to the West,
the Ukraine has had to deal with questions of human rights, feminism and a
history of anti-Semitism. An eclectic group of contemporary Ukrainians
talks with Hammer as they reflect on everything from the notorious
massacre at Babi Yar to new definitions of sexuality. TVPG (AC)

PRIPYAT
directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter
YEAR
1999

99 MINS, Color

Situated five kilometers from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, Pripyat
was once home to 50,000 people. Today it is a decaying ghost town, lying
in the heart of a guarded radioactive zone. Despite official prohibitions,
some poor, elderly and homeless still call it home. Austrian filmmaker
Nikolaus Geyrhalter presents an eerie and meditative report about living
within the shadow of a nuclear disaster, where, despite the bucolic
surroundings, drinking the water, eating the local food or breathing the
air on a windy day is not a good idea. TVPG Stereo/Letterbox/Subtitles
