The first ever showing of this film will be at the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) at University Centre. As we are showing this movie for FREE and because of its subject-matter, we would ask all those in attendance honour the memory of those killed in the Holodomor. If you can, please, bring a nonperishable food item or a bottle (pack or case) of water to help those currently going without food or drink here in Manitoba. If you can please also wear a traditional embroidered Vyshyvanka (Ukrainian shirt) or wear blue or yellow, to show some Ukie-pride!

Manitoba’s Ukrainian Canadian Student Society ( MUCSS) with the support of the Ukrainian Canadian Students’ Union (SUSK) , together with d Films and The University of Winnipeg Ukrainian Students’ Association is excited to announce that we are the first to present a FREE screenings of the most anticipated films of the year: Bitter Harvest!
Bitter Harvest is an outstanding piece of art filmed by George Mendeluk about the untold story of Holodomor, one of the worst man-made famines in the history of humanity. In 1932- 1933, this genocide imposed by the regime of Joseph Stalin targeted the total eradication of the Ukrainian nation as the Soviets could not contain Ukrainian desire to be free. The story unfolds around a young and courageous couple who is not afraid to fight against the destructive system imposed by the Soviet Union. Their rebellious spirit inspires many to never give up in the struggle for survival and freedom.
The film premieres on Wednesday, March 1st at 7pm. MUCSS is excited to announce the University of Manitoba campus will play host. The first ever showing of this film will be at the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) at University Centre.
