Authors’ Reading Month

Issue 103, July 2017.
The annual Authors’ Reading Month (ARM) – the largest literary festival in Central Europe – will be held in Lviv from 5 July to 4 August. First held in Brno in 2000, the event quickly spread to other cities, first in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, then Poland, and since 2015 in Lviv. The event’s focus is twofold: on one hand, it concentrates on presenting the national literature of the hosting countries; on the other, it selects a fifth country each year to become the ‘Guest of Honour’ and feature its literature – this year it is Georgia.

Parajanov Festival in Levandivka

Issue 103, July 2017.
Taking place in one of Lviv’s more remote and industrial districts – Levandivka – the Parajanov Festival kicked off the whole new cinema art movement in Ukraine. The festival takes its name from a Ukrainian legend of cinematic art, Sergey Parajanov. One of the 20th Century’s greatest masters of cinema, Parajanov was born in Georgia to Armenian parents. It was never likely that his work would conform to the strict socialist realism that the Soviet authorities demanded, so he carved out his own unique cinematic style. Through films like ‘Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors’ (Tini Zabutyh Predkiv), a rhapsodic celebration of Ukrainian folk culture, and ‘The Colour of Pomegranates’ (Nran Guyne), a masterpiece about Armenian poet Sayat Nova, Parajanov became an international celebrity, even as his films were banned at home and he was imprisoned. His films were just beginning to hit the foreign film festival circuit when he died in 1990.
