BITTER HARVEST is a love story, set against the backdrop of the 1932-33 Holodomor in Ukraine. Produced by prominent Ukrainian-Canadian Ihor Ihnatowycz, the film brings the tragedy of the famine-genocide to audiences around the world.

Set between the two World Wars and based on true historical events, BITTER HARVEST conveys the untold story of the Holodomor, the genocidal famine engineered by the tyrant Joseph Stalin, which ultimately killed millions of Ukrainians. The film displays a powerful tale of love, honor, rebellion and survival at a time when Ukraine was forced to adjust to the horrifying territorial ambitions of the burgeoning Soviet Union. With an exceptional cast of established and rising stars, the film epically recreates one of the most dramatic and dangerous episodes in the history of 20th Century Europe.

Here is a link to the film’s trailer: http://roadsideattractions.com/filmography/bitter-harvest/


Everyone involved with the film was intent on bringing to light the true story of the Holodomor - this unthinkable, unimaginable concealed crime against humanity.  Thus the UCCA strongly encourages our community to support the film BITTER HARVEST and urge their local theaters to screen the film!


If the film was already shown at your local theater – ask for a re-release!

If it has not yet been shown at near you– ask for it to booked at your local theater today!


We urge you to disseminate this Action Item widely throughout your email lists and community contacts!
