Zarvanytsia/New Jerusalem

Every year, thousands of Ukrainian Christians undertake a pilgrimage to Zarvanytsia, a sacred place. Between prayers they share news, brag about their wealth, take pictures of chapels, give interviews, and witness miracles. Witness miracles?

Join us at the Royal College of Art, Gorvy Lecture Theatre for a screening of the documentary Zarvanytsia/New Jerusalem by Kyiv-based artists and filmmakers, Roman Khimei and Yarema Malashchuk.

After the film we will host a Q&A with one of the directors
