 The Documentary Film

"Воскресеніє народа – The Resurrection of a Nation"

Organized in cooperation with the

Carpatho-Rusyn Society National Capital Branch

The 20th century was the roughest in history for the Carpatho-Rusyns of Central Europe. After World War II, when they were declared Ukrainians by the new Communist regimes in every country where they live, Carpatho-Rusyns in Czechoslovakia and elsewhere became extinct overnight - and this was their existence for more than 50 years.
But with the 1989 Velvet Revolution, led by the playwright and former dissident Václav Havel, Carpatho-Rusyn ethnicity revived in every country... including the United States! This is the story of that revival. Воскресеніє народа —the Resurrection of a Nation.
Enjoy this documentary, filmed in Slovakia, Canada, and the United States, made especially for the 30th anniversary of the Fall of Communism, and discuss it with the producers and other viewers afterward. All of the events are open to the public and there are English subtitles.

If you have family and friends near any of these upcoming events, please share the information with them!
