In a Carpathian village, Ivan falls in love with Marichka, the daughter of his father's killer. When tragedy befalls her, his grief lasts months; finally he rejoins the colorful life around him, marrying Palagna. She wants children but his mind stays on his lost love. To recapture his attention, Palagna tries sorcery, and in the process comes under the spell of the sorcerer, publicly humiliating Ivan, who then fights the sorcerer. The lively rhythms of village life, the work and the holidays, the pageant and revelry of weddings and funerals, the change of seasons, and nature's beauty give proportion to Ivan's tragedy.

The Inaugural Ukrainian Film Fest brings you features, documentaries and shorts that shine a light on Ukrainian culture and accomplishment in the art of filmmaking. These films were chosen, in part, by Winter Fest 2023 co-curator Olga Bekenshtein to provide insights to Ukraine's identity and contemporary life. Tickets and student/senior/other discounts for Fest film screenings are available on the 3Below website.
