The documentary, That Never Happened, subtitled Canada’s First National Internment Operation, is about the more than 8500 Ukrainian and European people who were wrongfully imprisoned in Canada between 1914 and 1920. Sent to camps across Canada, not for anything they had done but because of where they came from, the public records about this stain own Canadian history were destroyed in 1954. More than 25 years later a few brave men and women began working to reclaim this chapter in history and ensure future generations would know about it. That Never Happened was the winner of the People’s Choice Award at the 2017 Bay Street Film Festival and winner of the Best Investigative Documentary at the 2017 Regina International Film Festival. It is the first feature-length film from producer-director Ryan Boyko.
