Polish Monthly Film - Sunday, December 2 at 3:30pm 2018

Polish Monthly Film - Sunday, December 2 at 3:30pm       WHAT: “Yuma”, 2012, action / drama, 113 min., English subtitles.
WHERE: 5500 Manchaca Rd. Austin Public Library. Tel: 512-974-8700
WHEN: Sunday, December 2,  2018 at 3:30pm 
COST: FREE
CONTACT: joanna.guttlehr AT austinpolishfilm.com Director: Piotr Mularuk
Screenplay: Piotr Mularuk, Wojciech Gajewicz
Cinematography: Tomasz Dobrowolski Cast: Jakub Gierszał, Katarzyna Figura, Tomasz Kot, and others. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxd9vPiXinY Synopsis Based on a true story set on the Polish/German border. It is a tale of the rise and fall of Zyga, a young Polish man who wants to take charge of his life after the fall of communism, a time of chaos and moral anarchy. Zyga is obsessed with the 1957 movie “3:10 to Yuma” — a cowboy tale of lawless anarchy on the frontier. Movie star handsome with an easy grin, Zyga starts smuggling cigarettes at the behest of his auntie Halina, who runs a brothel and Yuma ring where the mayor is a regular. Zyga is a witness to the complete degradation of life around him. The promised land never comes to his home town, while the Germans across the border seem to have it all. Zyga crosses the border and engages in a petty crime he calls “yuma”. Back home, handing out stolen goods makes him a quick hero. Before Zyga realizes what is happening to him, money and power overtake his naive dreams of a better life. “Yuma” is a hugely engrossing, great sweeping saga of Good versus Evil, Polish Western style.

  The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, the Consulate General of Ireland in Austin and the British Consulate General in Houston are honoured to welcome Senator George Mitchell to the LBJ School of Public Affairs in Austin on Monday November 19th at 5:15 pm to speak about his role in the Northern Ireland Peace Process on the 20th anniversary of the signature of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

Roman Romanyshyn November 15 – 28, 2018

Roman Romanyshyn, Yellow Submarine, 2013, etching Roman Romanyshyn: Miscellanea
November 15 – 28, 2018

Opening reception: Friday, November 16 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Please RSVP to attend.

The Ukrainian Institute of America
2 East 79th Street, New York, NY 10075

Art at the Institute is delighted to present “Miscellanea,” an exhibition of color etchings by the Lviv-based Ukrainian artist Roman Romanyshyn. An opening reception for the artist will be held on Friday, November 16 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, with the exhibition remaining on view through November 28. Curated by Walter Hoydysh, Ph.D., this exhibition marks Romanyshyn’s first solo showing with The Ukrainian Institute of America.

The city of Lviv, in western Ukraine, is synonymous with printmaking. Romanyshyn’s iconic and characteristic approach to narrative graphics, illustration and printing is practiced within the deep reaches of a centuries-old Leopolitan tradition that includes modern and contemporary peers the likes of Ihor Bilykovsky, Oleh Denysenko, Bohdana Fedorovych, Ivan Ostafiychuk, Volodymyr Pihinin, Ihor Podolchak, Bohdan Soroka, and Myron Yatsiv.

Romanyshyn draws much of his inspiration from literature, fables and folklore. As if from a youthful perspective, he rediscovers antiquated and familiar subjects — whether planetary and zodiacal, the story of Alice in Wonderland, or the Wives of Henry VIII — illuminating them with equal child-like abandon. 

His meticulous and dimensional multi-plate intaglio process certainly demonstrates an artisanal way to draughtsmanship and illustration. It is intimate. It is authentic. It is alive. It contains something irreplaceable from the now ubiquitous digital sphere. The figures that dominate his work are elaborate character reveries and his cosmic and earthly landscapes are complex, all of which make the worlds Romanyshyn creates so enchanting and engaging. 

Roman Romanyshyn is a graduate of the Lviv State Institute of Decorative and Applied Arts. Besides printmaking, he is also engaged in illustration, painting, and sculpture. His graphic works are widely exhibited and collected throughout Europe, and have won international awards for printmaking, among them, the 14th Mini Print International, Barcelona (Spain), 9th International Miniature Print Exhibition, Seoul (South Korea), 4th International Painting Biennial of the Carpathian Euroregion, Przemysl (Poland). He lives and works in Lviv.

Exhibition hours: Tuesday to Sunday from 12:00 – 6:00 PM.

Synopsis
Inspired by a true story, the film starts in a present-day Moscow terrorized by an elusive serial killer dubbed by the police “photographer” as he leaves numbered tiles at the scenes of his crimes, similar to those that forensic teams place. The investigators suspect links to a dark past of the 70-ties in Legnica, Poland, where the Soviet Red Army base used to station during the Cold War. The filmmaker spent his childhood and youth there and clearly remembers the times and events, some of which made it to his film. A young policewoman, Natasha, plays an active role in the hunt for the murderer. She is the only person who survived the encounter with the "Photographer". Why did he spare her life? How does Natasha know that the tracks of the murderer are to be followed in Poland?
