BACK TO BUCHA
Several weeks ago, Back to Bucha was previewed for a group of parishioners at St. Andrews Episcopal Church in Lake Worth Beach. It got a unanimous thumbs up! So much so that the Lake Worth Playhouses Stonzek Theatre just down the street has graciously agreed to host Back to Buchas Florida Premiere.
Get ready for an uplifting screening and immerse yourself in the captivating stories of our everyday "stars" in Ukraine caught in a war none saw coming. Brace yourself for laughter, tears, and unforgettable moments. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to experience the magic of cinema in the heart of Lake Worth. Grab your friends and family, and join the film's director Steve Richards who will be on hand for a quick intro and Q&A afterwards.
The film provides an uplifting view of people just like us dealing with Russias war - especially the moms just trying to raise their families in their own country, after returning home after the wars early months.
Back to Bucha opens with a poem. A poem written by Phyllis Wheatley in 1784, an African American who captures the essence of what Ukrainians are fighting for: In every human Breast, God has implanted a Principle, which we call Love of Freedom; it is impatient of Oppression, and pants for Deliverance.
Unlike the original Trek to Bucha shot in the early days of the full-scale invasion, Back to Bucha is filled with women and their children. Beginning in April 2022 in the films opening scenes in Bucha we meet Tonya at a destroyed coffee shop, sweeping up broken glass and trying to reopen the shop at least enough to serve free coffee to the workers and neighbors who were still there.
Flash forward 10 months and we meet Tonya plus Julia, the shops owner. At the newly rebuilt Juls Coffee and Peace we get an upbeat and hopeful interview about Julias return with her family and the Spirit that drives them to rebuild. They believe God is watching over them.
