The Ukrainian Time Machine

Apr 02, 2010

(Naomi Uman, Ukraine/USA, 2008-09, 16mm, 55 min)

Director In Attendance! 

These poetic documentary films combine personal, experimental and non-fiction approaches to capturing life in the Ukrainian town of Uman. Director Naomi Uman draws upon her personal experience, living with her subjects for a long time to become integrated into a family or community. For this collection of intimate films she returned to the tiny village that her family fled a hundred years ago. Full of the cinematic richness that can only be captured on film, Uman’s gaze lingers affectionately on things both beautiful and ordinary.
