Storyline

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. The film displays a powerful tale of love, honour, 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.

There ought to be more movies/documentaries about this horrific event in Ukrainian history. The spirit of the people was not destroyed and the traditions, language, heritage, spirit of Ukrainians is alive today. Wish this movie was given a wider audience as the facts are a reminder how much a nation has suffered and lost and continues to fight back against Russia. The director did a wonderful job. A must see.
