Documentary: “Three Women” International Education Week
November 15 • 6 p.m.
In a remote village, whose name roughly means “a cold place,” this film looks for warmth in encounters. The Ukrainian village of Stuzhytsya is situated in the Carpathian Mountains in the border triangle between Poland and Slovakia. The three elderly female protagonists — a farmer, a post office clerk and a biologist — are firmly rooted in a place where hardly any young people are left in 2019, the year of Volodymyr Zelensky’s election victory. Over time, the film crew also becomes, at least temporarily, a valued part of the village community.
