“Soviet Union. 1933.
Stalin's tyranny could destroy their country. But not their love.
Based on one of the most overlooked tragedies of the 20th century, Bitter Harvest is a powerful story of love, honor, rebellion and survival as seen through the eyes of two young lovers caught in the ravages of Joseph Stalin’s genocidal policies against Ukraine in the 1930s. As Stalin advances the ambitions of communists in the Kremlin, a young artist named Yuri ( Max Irons ) battles to survive famine, imprisonment and torture to save his childhood sweetheart Natalka ( Samantha Barks ) from the “Holodomor,” the death‑by‑starvation program that ultimately killed millions of Ukrainians.” (for more details on the Holodomor, see http://holodomor.ca/holodomor-basic-facts/.)
Our Saskatoon launch will be hosted by the U of S Ukrainian Students' Association (USUSA). Please contact any USUSA Executive for more information on your local event. This is a free event open to the public.
