Kateryna Pavlyuk | Ukraine 2022 | Documentary | 8 min
30 years after the fall of the Soviet Union, three generations of Ukrainian women relay their memories, variously sharp and hazy, of three distinct eras. A short documentary and triptych portrait, bittersweet in both content and context. Filmed in the year before Ukraine would have to fight anew for independence, the women’s memories of bygone times ring with devastating relevance, and their hopes for the future take on stinging new significance.

Apostles of Cinema follows Frank, DJ Black, and Rehema — three devoted film workers in Tanzania — as they reintroduce a classic piece of the country’s film history to their audiences of working class cinephiles. We join them, alongside Maangamizi: The Ancient One (2001), on a journey through the labyrinth of informal libraries, studios, and cinemas that exist to keep film and film culture alive. A testament to the profound cultural value of film when made truly accessible.
