I have yet to hear one poor review of the film or of the evening overall! It’s great to see people come out and support initiatives like this and their presence was truly appreciated. As the film wrapped up Marusya Bociurkiw and Halya Kuchmij came to the front for a short discussion and 1-on-1 Q&A. Afterwards, the discussion was open to the public. The audience seemed to have a broad variety if ideas and questions they wanted answered, contributing to the overall conclusion – more information about Ukraine, the Revolution of Dignity, the war in Eastern Ukraine and the people involved needs to be spread.
Did someone say there was cake? There was! In the end, upon exit, our guests were served a two-tier rainbow cake. A great excuse to stick around a while longer, meet new people and discuss what they just experienced.
Special thanks to Innis Town Hall for their kind support and amazing cooperation.
