“Heritage of a Nation” is the first feature-length documentary film about Ukrainian embroidered shirts, yesterday and today. It covers the symbolism of Ukrainian embroidery, how vyshyvanka manifests in popular culture, and personal stories about their shirts from Ukrainians and people throughout the Ukrainian diaspora, including Canada. This film will help audiences from all cultural backgrounds to understand the importance of Vyshyvanka Day, the international holiday aimed at preserving Ukrainian folk traditions, which is celebrated every third Thursday of May.
This Winter, we continue learning about the modern history of Ukraine through the monthly documentary film series that began in Fall 2022. This is an opportunity for everyone interested in contemporary Ukraine to learn more about its struggles and triumphs in the 20th and 21st centuries. All films are bilingual Ukrainian/English, with subtitles and are screened onsite at the Ukrainian Museum of Canada, Saskatoon. The Museum will host an informal discussion following each film.
