October 6: Bitter Harvest (2017)
Discussant: George Mendeluk (Director & Producer)

The romantic-drama Bitter Harvest by German-Canadian director of Ukrainian descent George Mendeluk, is set in Soviet Ukraine in the early 1930s. Based on true historical events, the film conveys the untold story of the “Holodomor”, the genocidal famine engineered by Joseph Stalin. It is a tale of love, honor, rebellion and survival at a time when farmers in Ukraine were forced to adjust to the horrifying social engineering by the Soviet Union. The film has been nominated for a prestigious Political Film Society Award in all four categories for Democracy, Exposé, Human Rights, and Peace. Rated R, 103 minutes. http://www.bitterharvestfilm.com/
