MR. JONES SYNOPSIS
Agnieszka Holland's thriller, set on the eve of world WWII, sees Hitler's rise to power and Stalin's Soviet propaganda machine pushing their "utopia" to the Western world. Meanwhile an ambitious young journalist, Gareth Jones (Norton) travels to Moscow to uncover the truth behind the propaganda, but then gets a tip that could expose an international conspiracy, one that could cost him and his informant their lives. Jones goes on a life-or-death journey to uncover the truth behind the façade that would later inspire George Orwell's seminal book Animal Farm. Based on a true story.

Exhibition A Conversation (Besida). Five Years of War in the Donbas

image

A Conversation is an installation and art performance by legendary Ukrainian artist Vlodko Kaufman, with the assistance of fellow Ukrainian artist Natalka Shymin. It is a candid and provocative, yet subtle, treatment of the everyday responses of Ukrainians to war in their homeland and is a reminder to those outside of Ukraine that it endures. Kaufman's work as a performance artist, painter, and book designer dates back to late-Soviet-era, underground Ukrainian culture and he has been a leading voice in the development of Ukrainian art for over the past quarter of a century. He is co-founder and Artistic Director of the Dzyga Art Association in Lviv, Ukraine.

Vlodko Kaufman explains that he started drawing the miniature "portraits" of soldiers at the start of the war in the Donbas in 2014. The collection grew as the conflict continued, and the roster of military and civilian victims kept expanding. The miniatures number in the thousands – little pieces of repurposed paper which serve to remind us that the brutal and deadly war is not over yet.

The exhibition concludes a 2-day conference entitled "Five Years of War in the Donbas: Cultural Responses and Reverberations" hosted by the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute, Columbia University. The conference will gather an international array of scholars to discuss the diverse ways that Ukrainian culture has been stirred by the recent war between Ukraine and Russia in the Donbas. It will present and analyze the vibrant and varied reflections of the war marking today's Ukrainian culture. It will explore the different, novel ways that Ukrainian literature, film, music, and visual art have attempted to perceive, interpret, and express war in the country.

Influenced by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, Alexander Archipenko developed his own avant-garde sculptural style experimenting with convex/concave forms, volume/space transference, and inventing sculpto-painting.

Exhibition Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later

image

On the morning of May 18, 1944, the Soviet government initiated a special operation in Crimea: the deportation of Crimean Tatars (Kirimli) to the Urals and Central Asia. Zarema Yaliboylu's exhibition, Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later, reveals this crime perpetrated by the Stalinist regime against the Kirimli through portraits and stories of ordinary people who survived the deportation and managed at last to return to Crimea. The people in these photos are living witnesses to Soviet crimes against humanity.
