Canadian director shooted a film about Ukrainian Holodomor
"Bitter harvest" movie about great famine, caused by Stalinist repressions, to be released in 2016
The first full-length feature film about the Stalinist repression in Ukraine, which led to the 1932-1933 great famine, to be released in January 2016 in Canada, UNIAN.
Canadian Ian Ihnatowycz produced the film "Bitter harvest" to let the West know about the suffering of Ukrainians at the hands of Russia, a reality that continues. It is a love story set during one of the most bloody moment of Ukraine's history, and the director portrays the frightening events, which are hard to imagine.
His parents and grandparents fled the country during the Second World War. "Like many Ukrainians, my parents went through enormous suffering. Today, perhaps, there is not a single Ukrainian who would not know about the repression, the executions, deportations, and famine. Given the importance of the incident, and the fact that outside of Ukraine very few people know about these events, this story of genocide must be shown. This is really important today," said Ihnatovich.
"Today, the Russian invasion of Ukraine also is not an object of an attention, despite the fact that Ukraine is one of the largest countries in Europe with 45 million people," he added.
