Part 22: The First Ukrainian-Language Feature Film in Canada: Zaporozhets za Dunaiem

Description: Audio recorded from CIUS conference.

On 6-8 September 1991, CIUS marked the Ukrainian Canadian centenary with a conference on selected aspects of Ukrainian life in Canada in the years between 1924 and 1951. Coinciding with the release of Orest Martynowych's landmark monograph, Ukrainians in Canada: The Formative Years, 1891-1924, the conference was designed as a first step toward creating a research base for writing the interwar history of Ukrainians in Canada. This period, in contrast to the well-studied pioneer immigration and prairie settlement experience, has received relatively little scholarly attention, despite it being so critical to both the crystallizing Ukrainian Canadian community and ongoing integration into Canadian life. Accordingly, it was CIUS’s plan to attract papers on as wide an array of topics as possible, avoiding broad generalities in favour of more limited but illuminating profiles and case studies.

In this recording Bohdan Nebesio, a Ph.D. student at the Department of Slavic and East European Studies at the University of Alberta, analyzes the 1938 production of Zaporozhets za Dunaiem, the “first Ukrainian-language feature film in Canada.”
