 focus cinema ucraino e russo alt [Ischia, 19th June 2016] Between different focuses at Ischia Film Festival 2016, very interesting that one about Ukrainian Cinema put on by Director of the most ancient Kiev Cinema Festival, Andrey Kalpaky. In Ischia will be screened many national premiéres of Ukranian Cinema. Quoting "The Living Fire"a poetic melanchonic portrait, sometimes fairy, of an apparently lost in time Community through the eyes of three generations. Filmed on Carpathians, in a perfect sintony with basic theme of Ischia Film Festival, it is the first feature film by Ukranian director Ostap Kostyuk and will be one of the Festival national premiéres. More the interesting documentary "Chornobyl", a journey through a city protagonist of the big Humanity disaster to test the current situation and find out scenaries for the future. Another film focus is "Povodyr" ("The guide") by Oles Sanin, Oscars nominee and played by the great Ukranian actor Sergiy Mykhalchuk. Film talks about a young American man, Peter, and a blind minstrel Ivan; both are involved in turbolent occurences of 1935 in Soviet Ukraine. Instead, between Russian films in program, "The Heritage of love", by Yuriy Vasilev, screened in world premiére at Cannes Festival, awaited documentary "Pink spring in the Kremlin" (1917: homosexuality is discriminated in Russia. 1933:homosexuality become again illegal. 1993:homosexuality is legalised. 2013: Vladimir Putin supports new legal measures against LGBT population.) and "When we talk about KGB": back to the 80's, in Lithuania occupied by Soviet. The most controversial side of the famous intelligence agency in one of the first documentaries ever produced about this topic. "We are glad that the XIV Ischia Film Festival Edition will gives space to this focus on Russian and Ukranian Cinema"- said the Artist Director Michelangelo Messina- "This  show regards important thematic that we are sure will give reflections and opens interessant debates."
