Film & Conversation: That Never Happened: Canada’s First National Internment Operations


Friday, March 8, 7 PM

That Never Happened (78 min.) is a film by Ryan Boyko that reveals the story of Canada’s first national internment operations between 1914 – 1920, when over 88,000 people were forced to register and more than 8,500 were wrongfully imprisoned in internment camps across Canada, not for anything they had done but because of where they came from. Following the screening, museum staff will facilitate a discussion with viewers.

One of 3 Canadian actors sanctioned by Russia, Ryan Boyko was instrumental in the creation of the Canada-Ukraine Audio Visual co-production treaty for film, and was invited to speak about Ukrainian Internment in Canada during the First World War at the United Nations for the 75th anniversary of the Universal declaration of Human Rights in Geneva, Switzerland.
