Galicia - In Search of Ukraine's Identity
Mythos Galizien - Die Suche nach der ukrainischen Identität
This documentary sets out to explore Galicia, a tract of land that, after a century of eventful history, is today once again faced with immense stresses and strains. Nowadays people look back fondly on the time when each ethnic group lived together in peace. In the Ukraine the book is the embodiment of the national culture and national conscience, and has a long tradition. In Ukrainian society, writers play a major role as commentators and intermediaries. This contradictory land that has such a rich culture is explored both literarily and sociologically through their works and thoughts.
