Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Sergei Loznitsa. Netherlands/Ukraine. 2021, 121 mins. In Russian and Ukrainian with English subtitles. DCP. A jury prize winner at both Cannes and IDFA, Loznitsa’s latest film constructed entirely of archival footage (following The Event, The Trial, and State Funeral) is a meticulous recounting of the events at Babi Yar, a ravine on the outskirts of Kiev where, in 1941, one of the largest mass executions in history took place, and where citizens who turned on their Jewish neighbors under one occupation sought to erase their actions under the next. Though exhaustively researched and reconstructed, this historical document is also a work of fury, a redress and wake-up call three quarters of a century in the making. New York premiere
