Harvest Of Despair
This film documents the Ukrainian terror famine of 1932-33, Holodomor, which caused the deaths of 7,000,000 people. Using interviews with survivors and scholars to supplement rare photographic evidence, it established that the terror famine was deliberately created by the Soviet Government as part of Stalin's decades-long effort to destroy the Ukrainian peasantry, who resisted the forced collectivization of their lands. Since its original release, it has received many international awards (including an Academy Award nomination). A powerful film, Harvest of Despair provides rare insight into one of this century's least-known but most vicious genocides.
