2011 EDITION

THE UKRAINIAN TIME MACHINE. FILMS MADE BY NAOMI UMAN FROM 2008 TO 2011

Naomi Uman entered the world of experimental documentary with the controversial diptych made by Leche and Mala leche (1998). Her unpleasing portrait of a cow-breeding Hispanic family on both sides of the Mexican-US border sparked debate on how to portray such communities. One year later, she released the caustic Removed, which soon became a reference of appropriation (and manipulation) film.
Uman has spent the past four years in Ukraine, which her great grandparents had left in search for America, the promised land. She set off on the reverse journey in an attempt to recover the experience of her forebears, which she recorded in the seven-film saga The Ukrainian Time Machine (3’ to 80’ each movie). The last part is a video journal Uman kept during the four years it took her to complete her project. Still a work in progress, the saga is having its world premiere at Punto de Vista. The fact that Naomi Uman will be a member of the Punta de Vista 2011 jury is an honour to the festival’s organisers. The news that The Ukrainian Time Machine will be shown at the festival and introduced by the director herself is reason for moviegoers to celebrate.
