The Czech Center in Kyiv in cooperation with a network of bookstores “E” will show 16 films from the golden fund of Czech cinema. This was informed by Lutsie Rzhehorzhikova, director of the Czech Centre at the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ukraine, during a press briefing at Ukraine Crisis Media Center. “We have thought hard how to present something interesting from Czech culture to the Ukrainian audience, and decided to present Czech films. […] We would like to get these movies across to as many people as possible,” she noted. Every second Thursday, starting from February 2, the films will be demonstrated in 13 cities of Ukraine in bookstores “E.” Since May the films will be demonstrated every Thursday until the end of June.
Among the selected cities are Kyiv, Kharkiv, Vinnytsia, Dnipro, Ternopil, Sumy, Rivne, Lutsk, Khmelnytsky, Ivano-Frankivsk, Lviv, Zaporizhzhya, Mariupol and Kramatorsk. In the latter, four cities, where there are no bookstores “E,” the films will be shown at other places. A detailed program of shows can be found on the website of the Czech Centre at the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ukraine. “Last year mostly documentaries were demonstrated on the Czech Thursdays. Now we will focus on the feature films,” noted Anastasia Levkova, art director of the bookstores “E.” The films will be demonstrated in original language with Ukrainian subtitles. There also will be a slide presentation about the director of the film before each show.
