The screening of a movie directed by Wiesław Romanowski “The House of Architect Horodetsky” is going to take place on the 20 of April in the cinema “Ukraina” in Kyiv.

After the viewing there will be a discussion with the director, Larysa Omelina, Prof. Ola Hnatiuk and Vladislava Osmak “Horodetsky in the Polish-Ukrainian Historical Context”.

The creative work of a prominent architect Vladyslav Horodetsky in Kyiv began at a tipping point between the 19th and 20th centuries. His works are numerous, from the Classicist National Art Museum to the Karaim Kenesa in the Moorish style. The pinnacle of the creative rise of Vladyslav Horodetsky was his own house on Bankova street, 10, the so-called “House with chimeras” which he built in 1903 on the account of his 40th birthday. It embodies Horodetsky’s interest in hunting and his creative fantasy that rebelled against routing forms and traditions.

The film will be shown in the original language with Ukrainian subtitles.

Admission is free but it is necessary to register for the viewing before April 17, 2018 at the address: natalia.bankewycz(at)instytutpolski.org
