Mykola Kulish and Les Kurbas: executed but unconquered! An innovative documentary version of one of the world's best plays of the 20th century.
Narodnyi Malakhiy (People's Malakhiy), written by the prominent Ukrainian playwright Mykola Kulish, is listed in the Top 100 Greatest Dramatic Works of the 20th Century. Kulish wrote his play in 1927. The same year, Les Kurbas, a prominent Ukrainian theatre director, breathed a staged life into the play in his experimental Berezil Theatre. The film’s authors, together with experts in cultural studies, attempt to draw parallels between the plot of the old play and the days we live in. What’s that horrible thing which Mykola Kulish coded into his play and his character Malakhii? Is his message still relevant today? Movie Performance. People's Malakhii! attempts to answer these questions.
