Godfrey Dean Gallery and The PCUH: Art of the Revolution

During the winter of 2013-14, thousands gathered in protest on Kyiv’s Independence Square or EuroMaidan in response to the political problems that had beset Ukraine over the many years, including corruption, manipulation and intimidation. The protests resulted in the transformation of the social and political order. At the time, circulating on Kyiv’s EuroMaidan, were poster images that captured the energy and vitality of the transformative process that was occurring. Designed and created for mass distribution through the medium of the private printer, they testify to a deep desire for change and are symbolic of the best impulses of a society mobilizing in its own defense.

Enemy Aliens – Live Script Reading

On Friday, April 4th, the University of Saskatchewan Ukrainian Students Association and the PCUH were fortunate enough to host a live script reading of Saskatoon-born Ryan Boyko’s upcoming feature-length film, Enemy Aliens.  The audience of over 60 people was captivated by Mr. Boyko’s moving script, which focused on the Ukrainian internment operations in Canada.

Though a piece of historical fiction, Enemy Aliens does include many instances that did actually occur, taken from first-person accounts that have been collected. The script reading was followed by a lively discussion about the film, which provided Mr. Boyko and his crew with valuable feedback.  We are grateful for opportunity to host such a unique event on campus, and very much look forward to the release of Enemy Aliens!
