February 22nd – 23rd
Ukranian Museum Archives
Please join us at the UMA on Friday, February 22 or Saturday, February 23 for an unofficial sneak preview of the movie “Hutsulka Ksenia” (Ksenia the Hutsul Girl”). It is an adaptation of the musical composed by Jaroslav Barnych, a post-World War II immigrant to Cleveland who was active here in the 1950s to 1970s. This opportunity came up unexpectedly when former Clevelander Ihor Ciszkewycz, who now works in Kyiv in the film industry, offered to present the film at the UMA. The movie, directed by Alena Demydenko, revolves around a considerable inheritance that a Ukrainian-American millionaire leaves his son, provided, that is, that he go to Ukraine and find a conscientious Ukrainian bride to marry. Romance, mystery and adventures follow with colorful customs and spectacular scenery from the Carpathian Mountains with music throughout by Dakha Brakha and Dakha Daughters.
The musical, in Ukrainian with English sub-titles, will be screened at the UMA Friday, February 22 at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:00 with a reception. There will be additional screenings on Saturday, February 23 at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Space is limited. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call the UMA at 216 781-4329 to reserve a seat. Admission is by good-will donation.
