Morytats and Legends from Ladomirova

Saturday, March 2, 2013 at 2 PM

Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church, 285 French Hill Road, Wayne, NJ 07470
Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.

The documentary film Morytats and Legends of Ladomirova, is not meant to be a searching for experienced truths of people living in the Ruthenian village of Ladomirova. Rather it tries to capture their subjective memories, often frozen in time and enclosed in everyday life. There were left only the feelings of joy, sadness and suffering reflecting the great history of the 20th century. There is no truth about past, it is only the imperfection of our mind that creates out of reality, sanguinary edifying stories - morytates and legends. The film was directed by Peter Kerekes in 1998 and is about 56 minutes in length. For further information, please send an e-mail to or call Dorothy Bognar at (201) 891-4151.

Directions: Take Route 46 to the Riverview Drive Exit in the direction of Wayne. Continue on Riverview Drive to the traffic light at Valley Road. At Valley Road, Riverview Drive becomes French Hill Road. Proceed straight through the light and continue up the hill for approximately ΒΌ mile. Holy Resurrection Church will be on the left.
