Chapters and Verses – Toronto film screening
November 9 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
“Chapters and Verses: Action Bill’s Walk Through Life” is a documentary film about Wasyl (Bill) Kuryliw (1910-2004), who was a very well-known figure in the Sudbury Ukrainian-Canadian community. The film has had several screenings to date in Toronto, Sudbury and Edmonton.
Although the film’s subject is one man, its significance is broader, and is unique among recent Ukrainian-oriented films. Most of these films that have been shown here recently concern Ukraine – especially the current situation in Eastern Ukraine, or about the Holodomor. There are few films (documentary or other) about the Ukrainian-Canadian experience, or about Ukrainian-Canadians’ contributions to our community and to the country. “Chapters and Verses” can help tell one of those stories – both within and outside the Ukrainian-Canadian community. .
As well, Wasyl’s “larger-than-life” character helps make the film interesting and appealing to a broad audience.
Presented by Ukrainian Women’s Organization of Canada – Toronto Branch (OYK)
