FAMILY PORTRAIT IN BLACK AND WHITE

DIRECTOR: JULIA IVANOVA - WASHINGTON (SPOKANE)

(DOC) “In a Ukrainian village, big-hearted, formidable Olga Nenya singlehandedly raises 23 foster children. Sixteen are the biracial offspring of visiting African students and Ukrainian women, who, living in a country of blue-eyed blondes that’s racked with endemic racism, often see no choice but to abandon their babies. Olga reveals herself to be loving and protective but also narrow-minded and controlling. A product of Communist ideology, she favors collective duty over individual freedom. It’s this philosophy that gives the orphans the rich sense of belonging they ache for, as well as cause for rebellion and distrust, in this lyrical, sometimes gut-wrenching tale about the meaning of ‘Mama,’ ‘family,’ and ‘nation.’”—Sundance Institute
