Slovo House: Unfinished Novel
Friday, May 31, 2024 7:00 PM
Kharkiv, the 1930s. The heyday of Ukrainian art. Ambitious young poet Vladimir Akimov happily settles in at the new luxury "Slovo" House built specifically for artists. He comes from the provinces and works as a proof-reader in a printing press, and has never even dreamed of living under one roof with prominent Ukrainian writers and artists. He thinks his own poetry is genius, but nobody takes his literary efforts seriously, not to mention the occasional chuckles over his epigone poems. But fate smiles at him. The head of the political intelligence agency suggests that he become the author of a play written earlier. Akimov agrees, signing a non- disclosure note. The poet has no idea what price he will pay for this success. “‘Slovo’ House” is a story about a generation of Ukrainian artists persecuted by the totalitarian system, unfolding against the backdrop of one of the largest genocides of the 20th century: the Holodomor, which caused the death of almost 7 million people.

"Slovo" House. Unfinished novel.

Based on true events, this drama delves into the lives of Ukrainian writers during the era of the "Executed Renaissance." In collaboration with MUR and their musical project "You're a Romantic," it tells the story of the "Slovo" house, where Soviet authorities gathered Ostap Vyshnia, Pavlo Tychyna, Les Kurbas, Mykola Khvylovy, Mykola Semenko, Krushelnytska, Yalovy, Sosiura, Yanovych, Johansen, and many others, compelling them to work for the benefit of the system. The film reveals how the communist paradise transforms into a true hell of repression, executions, lost dreams, and lives. Yet, we will always remember not only their talented works but also their tragic fates.

Presented in Ukrainian with English subtitles.
