A special preview screening of a new documentary “Myth: What Has Wassyl Slipak Died For” was held at the Embassy of Ukraine in the USA. The release of this documentary in Ukraine is planned for the next year.

It was the second time when the joint work of filmmakers Leonid Kanter and Ivan Yasniy was presented at the Embassy. Prescreening of their documentary “The Ukrainians” was a success of the last year.

Ambassador Valeriy Chaly thanked the audience of the event for their support for Ukraine and their interest to a new film as well as expressed appreciation to directors and crew for creating the documentary that allowed to feel and understand better the events in Ukraine related to the Russian aggression.

Filmmaker Leonid Kanter who was personally presenting the documentary along with film editor Yaroslav Popov, executive producer Kateryna Mizina and Orest Slipak (brother of Wassyl Slipak) noted that prescreening of “Myth” in Washington, DC, where all important US political decisions are taken, had special significance. He also highlighted that the documentary was about love to one’s native land that was worth of the highest possible self-sacrifice.
