Are you dating any Ukrainian ladies living in Donetsk? They will get a taste of American living this week as the city hosts the "American Days" cultural festival. Sponsored by the U.S. Embassy, the three-day event will highlight American films, dance, education, athletics, photography, and more.

 

Opening the festival will be the American Education Fair, followed by Ivan Dudkin's "America the Unexpected" photo exhibit which will include a lecture and master class by the photographer himself.

 

Wednesday evening will feature the opening ceremony of the Donetsk American Independent Film Festival with award-winning documentary director David Novak as a special guest. The films that will be shown for free include Sputnik Mania, Planet B-Boy, Atomic States of America, Burning the Future: Coal in America, Brooklyn Castle, and How to Survive a Plague.   

 

Another highlight of "American Days" is Tech Camp, an interactive event that will bring together American and Ukrainian technology experts along with educators and social media enthusiasts to find effective, low-cost ways to address real social problems by using technology.

 

There will also be performances by Illstyle & Peace Productions, an award-winning Philadelphia hip hop dance troupe, and workshops by Angela Hucles, the U.S. Olympic gold medalist soccer player and world cup champion.
