In an age when disinformation muddles the truth, a newly discovered voice cuts through the historical haze. She is Rhea Clyman, a young Canadian reporter who traversed the starving Ukrainian heartland when Stalin’s man made famine was just beginning. Clyman’s newly discovered newspaper articles for Toronto and London newspapers in 1932 show her remarkable resourcefulness and courage. After she was banished from the USSR for writing about the Holodomor and the Gulag, this brave woman went on to cover Hitler’s early lethal years in power. The hour long documentary looks at Clyman’s truth telling trip during the 1930’s in the context of today’s conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Once again an autocrat is trying to dismember neighboring countries while covering up atrocities from the world. Rhea Clyman’s pluck and defiant audacity in ferreting out the truth is just as relevant today as it was 85 years ago.
