Within the days of the Ukrainian culture, called »Cultural mix Borscht« that are going on annually in May in Slovenia the renowned Slovenian director Maja Weiss will show us a story of Ukraine. We will watch the films Boy, Bloodbrother of Death 1 and 2. The stories of two shocking films are connected by the Chernobyl nuclear plant accident and the fate of a nine year-old Ukrainian boy Anatoly Rizhov and his family. The movies were filmed in 1991, five years after the accident, and again twenty years later in 2011.
