CineCulture presents “Bitter Harvest” at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, in the Peters Education Center Auditorium at the Student Recreation Center (5010 N. Woodrow Ave.).

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. George Mendeluk, the film’s director and producer, will lead the post-screening discussion.

This presentation of the film, 103 minutes in length and rated R, is co-sponsored by the Department of History, the College of Social Sciences and the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America.

This showing is held in conjunction with the “Hunger for Truth: Illuminating the Hidden History of the Holodomor” symposium to be held on campus in the Henry Madden Library Oct. 5-6.

All CineCulture events screened on campus are free and open to the public. Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays. INFO: Dr. Mary Husain at or visit the CineCulture website. See original press release.
