A brilliant historical documentary film in 4 parts about the history of Ukraine, made by film producer Jerzy Hoffman, covering 4 chronological divisions from early times to the present. It is a captivating narrative of a thousand years of Ukrainian history, of its most dramatic and defining moments that leaves the viewer both informed and thirsty for more. Mr. Hoffman’s love for Ukraine, obvious to anyone who can see and hear, does not compromise his level-headed depiction of even the most controversial aspects of Ukraine’s history. This film is both a great introduction for novices and a summary for those who already know a lot. It’s a must have for everybody who takes interest in Ukraine.
