DIASPORA - Written and Directed by Deco Dawson
Starring - Yula Guzhav     Produced by Eagle Vision Inc.    Runtime - 2hr 20min
Part of the Architecture and Design Film Festival: screening, panel and fundraiser for Ukraine.

Arriving in Winnipeg’s North End, young Ukrainian immigrant Eva finds a city filled with rundown, outdated establishments and a disproportional number of culturally diverse immigrants in search for a new life; each holding onto their own language and culture, creating a neighbourhood of comedic miscommunication, growing apathy and painful alienation. DIASPORA has screened across Canada and internationally, including in war torn Ukraine.
Deco Dawson has won the Best Short Film Awards at the Toronto International Film Festival twice, The Mayor’s Arts Award, and the Winnipeg Film Group Hothouse Award.
