Mythen der Wirklichkeit #4

Who was Stepan Bandera? In Ukraine everyone knows his name. In the Russian-Ukrainian war, the myth around the partisan leader is revived – on both sides. While Russian television depicts him as a sort of Ukrainian Hitler,he is celebrated as a national hero in Ukraine. Yuriy Gurzhy and Marina Frenk will outline their research results as a sort of hip-hopera.

Premiere: December 22th, 2017

The Bandera sound track was released as a digital album at Balkan Beats Records in April 2018.

The series Mythen der Wirklichkeit is funded by Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa
