THE MOVIE NIGHT. THE FEMINITY

The femininity through the movie prism is the theme of the third movie night in the Artsvit Gallery.

Can we say anything new about it? How does the change of public opinion on gender reflect on the contemporary author's cinema? What is the view on and attitude towards female directors today? How do the authors feel femininity in their heroes and heroines and pass it on the screen? We offer to find answers during the night discussion.

Psychological Thriller 'Elle', directed by Paul Verhoeven

We analyze the smallest nuances of the main character's actions and motives. Is it easy to predict them in the context of a tense plot? Is the director's attitude to female characters different from his previous films, including the "Basic Instinct"?

‘The New Girlfriend’, directed by François Ozone

We are exploring a director’s special view and feeling of femininity. Is femininity something innate and can one make a conscious choice? What is the attitude toward it today in society and culture? Additionally, we appreciate the unique and recognizable directorial handwriting.

‘On My Way’, directed by Emmanuelle Bercot

The movie starring incredible Catherine Deneuve is interesting in the parallel study of two lines. We watch the plot line of the mature main character, who was the beauty contest winner in the youth, and compare with Deneuve’s own fate. We are looking for intersection points between the fictional and real personality. Does the perception and influence of the age change according to gender? How important is age by itself?

Buy Art to Support Ukraine. Purchase of an ambulance
In the spring, together with Dnipro Center for Contemporary Culture, we launched the Buy Art to Support Ukraine initiative — a charity sale of graphics by Ukrainian artists of the 20th century.
With the proceeds from the sale, we managed to buy an ambulance and bring it from Germany to Dnipro. Yesterday the car was delivered to the medics. Thank you to everyone who has joined the initiative. You have made an important contribution to the rescue of our military — most of the wounded are being transported to Dnipro from the front line, and medical workers need more and more equipment and cars.

We are raising funds for our temporary hub
During the war, Dnipro Center for Contemporary Culture has transformed into a social hub for internally displaced people.
