Seeds of Hunger, Ukraine 1933
France, 2022 (68 min.)
Gareth Jones, a young Welsh journalist, smuggled into Ukraine in March 1933. The region then experienced a completely unprecedented famine, both in terms of its scale and its causes. This famine kept secret and decided by Stalin is political. On his return, the journalist alerts the world but lies and Soviet manipulation triumph. This is the story of the power of inquiry and speech against the state apparatus. This is the story of a mass lie and crime. This is the story of the Holodomor.
“The invasion by Russia on February 24, 2022 gives new visibility to this mass crime which was also a state lie.” –Le Monde
The film received the Grand Prix Documentaire national at the 2023 International Documentary Festival FIPADOC.
