  • Ukrainian Time Machine: Video Diary 2-1-2006 to the Present

    2011. Ukraine/USA. Directed by Naomi Uman. In 2006, experimental filmmaker Uman returned to the Ukraine, where her great-grandparents had lived a hundred years earlier. While there, she used a 16mm camera to capture rural life (for the film Kalendar) and a video camera to record her personal experiences (which she assembled into Video Diary 2-1-2006 to the Present). The elder babushky welcomed her warmly, but she struggled to adapt to local customs. Uman’s “reverse immigration” develops into a revealing personal narrative exploring gender disparity, the history of Judaism, and global immigration. 83 min.
