Author: Vika Kozak
The Association of Ukrainians in the Republic of Ireland invites everyone to watch the film “Shchedryk” directed by Olesya Morhunets-Isayenko in Wicklow county.
The premiere of the film “Shchedryk” took place on the screens of Ukrainian cinemas on January 5 and has already managed to conquer the Ukrainian audience in Ukraine.
It was shot according to the script of Ksenia Zastavska in a co-production of Ukraine and Poland by the Ukrainian director Olesya Morhunets-Isayenko. “Ukrainian, Jewish and Polish families equally felt the oppression of both the Third Reich and the punitive regime of the USSR. In the hopelessness of enslavement, a Ukrainian family takes in children whose parents became victims of the occupiers and selflessly protects them as if they were their daughter, Yaroslava. Above all, the girl dreams of reconciling the whole world thanks to the Ukrainian “Schedryk”, which they are trying to erase from her memory,” says the description of the film.
All the events of that time remind us of the current genocide of our people. As in those times, we want to live in a free country, not to be slaves, to give our children the opportunity to choose their future. This is a Ukrainian, genuine, high-quality, good, important and atmospheric film. The tape was based on the real events in Ukraine at that time as part of Poland, the USSR and under the occupation of Germany. Here, our ethnic traditions are reproduced in detail, carols sound extremely sensual, sincere children’s laughter, deep parental love and strong eternal love are heard. The footage of the film reproduces the true reality even in everyday life: expensive costumes, exquisite taste, dishes, homemade toys, and etiquette. This is a film about real indomitable Ukrainians – that’s what we were, are and will be. Mykola Leontovych’s Shchedryk “Schedryk” forever became an invisible thread that forever united all Ukrainians around the world!
Funds received from ticket sales will be used by AURI to purchase generators and help with other humanitarian needs of Ukraine.
