Nova Doba newspaper about Kyiv and Kiev region




March 7, 2005.

    *** 29 March - 4 April 2005;
    House of Cinema, 6 Saksaganski St, Kiev
    February, 1 2005
    Latest samples of production by Ukrainian documentary film makers, also internationally famous films on human rights protection to be presented on 29 March - 4 April 2005 at UKRAINIAN CONTEXT Festival (Days of Films on Human Rights). House of Cinema, 6 Saksaganski St, Kiev; Ukraine.
    The new Festival aims at creating a system that would provide support and stimuli to Ukrainian film makers working in the sphere of human rights protection.
    The Ukrainian turmoil in December 2004 attracted international attention. At the end of the day, the very idea of struggle for human rights ceased to be abstract for many Ukrainians, and intense social activity became routine. Perhaps, it is time to review and assess the accumulated experience. Modern Ukrainian documentary films take the floor.
    The festival programme includes:
    presentations of new Ukrainian films and of video archives dating back to the days of the so-called Orange Revolution;
    Ukrainian presentation of internationally famous Citizen Berlusconi attended by the film's producer, Stefano Taldi.
    retrospective presentation of the best films-participants in various international festivals on human rights: One World (the Czech Republic), and Human Rights on the Screen (Poland).
    Democracy: Belorussian Approach special programme (designed and provided by Belorussian cinema workers);
    Master class; workshop in documentary films international co-production; numerous other events.
    Organised by the NGO Association, Ukrainian Helsinki Union and Centre for Modern Information Techniques and Visual Arts, the Festival enjoys support of IF Vidrodzhennia (Renaissance).
    Ukrainian Helsinki Union for Human Rights is an all-Ukrainian association of human rights protection bodies that assist implementation and due observation of humanitarian articles set forth by 1975 Helsinki conference on European safety and co-operation, by other relevant international documents and by effective Ukrainian legislation.
