Heading Back to Ukraine to Screen the Film For the Film’s Stars
By Steve Richards
As we approach the two-year anniversary of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, I will be heading back to Bucha for the Ukraine premiere of Back to Bucha on the evening of Friday, January 5th, at the Hotel Park Viktoria. The hotel was featured in the original Trek to Bucha and we held its premiere in the hotel’s ballroom this past February 5th. We are also planning to livestream the event including Q&A with the film’s stars, allowing American audiences to join us that afternoon. Ukrainian captions for the 76-minute version are ready to go!
This trip back to Ukraine is part of the launch of the film’s winter impact campaign which begins with a weekend of screenings at the Lake Worth Playhouse starting with its Florida premiere this coming Friday the 15th.
Then off I go to Ukraine on Christmas Day in my ongoing efforts to help the Ukrainian cause, bringing a bit of support and reassurance from the USA that we are with them. I’m very much looking forward to revisiting old friends and seeing how they are doing during the holidays.
I’ll also begin shooting the next film in the series and continue to dig into one of Putin’s favorite Orwellian justifications for the war: de-satanization. This particularly dangerous disinformation theme targeting America’s faithful just goes deeper and deeper in its impact, counting among its prey some of those in the highest echelons of American leadership.
