Between 1922 and 1930 in Ukraine, VUFKU (The All-Ukrainian Photo Cinema Administration) became synonymous with cinema. During the lecture, Alona Penzii will discuss the pivotal moments of creative and production collaboration at the VUFKU film studio, as well as the international and cross-art influences on Ukrainian cinema throughout the period of VUFKU's activity. The history of VUFKU remains one of the most successful modernization projects of Ukrainian culture and one of the cultural highlights of the intense post-revolution atmosphere of the 1920s.
