The Inglorious Serfs
By Roman Perfilyev
Starring Roman Lutskyi, Sergey Strelnikov, Kateryna Slyusar
Taras Hryhorovych Shevchenko (1814-1861), also known as Kobzar (meaning 'Bard'), was a Ukranian poet, writer and artist and political figure. His literary heritage is regarded to be the foundation of modern Ukranian literature.
Roman Perfilyev's 2020 film The Inglorious Serfs offers a potential answer to the hypothetical question "What if Taras Shevchenko, aka the "serf who founded a nation" put down his pen and took a Samurai sword into his hands?"
In Ukrainian with English subtitles.
