Mariupolis at Leopold’s Books Bar Caffè patio (following Ukrainian fundraiser dinner)
August 22 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Excerpt from Grant Phipps’ recent article about Sam Brown’s outdoor movie series at Leopold’s: Apart from the Herzog-Kinski features, Brown has also been hosting fundraising events that include monthly Ukrainian dinners that benefit the international nonprofit World Central Kitchen. The next one, on Monday, August 22, at 5 p.m., is coupled with a patio screening of the documentary Mariupolis (2016) by director Mantas Kvedaravičius. The Lithuanian-born Kvedaravičius was killed this past April during the Russian siege of Mariupol shortly before the Cannes premiere of companion film Mariupolis 2. Brown cites the efforts of producer Anna Palenchuk, founder of the Kyiv-based 435 Films, for helping make the 8 p.m. screening possible.
