Chapters & Verses: Action Bill's Walk through Life
A documentary film about Wasyl (Bill) Kuryliw

The Ukrainian Museum of Canada, Ontario Branch presents the final event in our Trunk Tales: Leaving home … finding home program. 

Join us for a relaxed evening of fellowship, experience the Trunk Tales exhibit in its final days, and enjoy a special screening of Chapters and Verses: Action Bill's Walk through Life , the story of a remarkable figure in the Ukrainian Canadian community.

Wasyl Kuryliw came to Canada from the Ukrainian village of Potochysche in 1928 at the age of 18 with $5 in his pocket, a grade 3 education and a powerful zest for life. He earned the nickname “Action Bill” for his unflagging energy and dedication to promoting Ukrainian organizations and culture — and his adopted city of Sudbury.

Chapters and Verses was funded in part by Shevchenko Foundation/Temerty Family Foundation Community Development Fund; Olzhych Foundation; SUS Foundation of Canada; Ukrainian Credit Union Limited; The UNF Foundation; Prometheus Foundation.
