Details

Oscar nominee Agnieszka Holland (Europa Europa, In Darkness) tells the extraordinary story of the real-life Welsh journalist who uncovered Stalin’s genocidal famine in Ukraine. Almost 10 million were killed during what became known as The Holodomor of 1932 and 1933. 

In 1933, Gareth Jones has gained fame from being the first foreign journalist to interview Hitler. On leaving a government role, Jones decides to travel to Moscow in an attempt to get an interview with Stalin himself. Hearing murmurs of government-induced famine, Jones travels clandestinely to Ukraine, where he witnesses the atrocities of man-made starvation. Deported back to London, Jones is accused of being a liar by those who have an interest in silencing him. As the death count mounts, Jones has to fight for the truth.
