*The screening will be free and will be part of the Masterclass given by Vitaly Mansky at 5:00PM. The movie will begin around 6:30PM*

Through the prism of his extended family, Mansky explores contemporary divisions in Ukrainian society over the Ukraine-Russia conflict, to question what constitutes national identity. From 2014 to 2015, with his elegantly composed camerawork, this ideal observer talks with family members living in Ukraine, Crimea and Donetsk, hoping to understand why in the post-Maidan-uprising era, they find themselves scattered on opposite sides of the barricades.
