Homeland

Tuesday, April 6, 2021 (All day)
online
Sponsored By: 
Center for Russian, East European, & Eurasian Studies

Review of film: "Visually striking, but narratively undernourished, the father-and-son-bonding drama “Homeward” unfolds against the backdrop of a fraught road trip from Kyiv to Russia-annexed Crimea and marks a flawed debut from young Ukrainian helmer-writer Nariman Aliev, a Crimean Tatar. Indeed, the plight of Crimean Tatars (both historically and currently) forms an important element of the plot.
