‘Gorals’ screens in Boardman
PolishYoungstown Inc. and the Youngstown-Warren chapter of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society will present a screening of the documentary “The Gorals: Highlanders of Carpathia” at Movies 8, 469 Boardman Poland Road, Boardman.
The film depicts a unique ethnographic group that has been mostly isolated for centuries in the mountain ranges between the Polish and Slovak borders and some areas of what is today western Ukraine and northeastern Romania. With changes in the environment and the modern world encroaching ever closer, the filmmakers explore the question as to whether this unique culture of the Carpathian highlanders is being pushed out of existence.
The movie starts at 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10 and include a post-screening reception at The Casual Pint.
