Both of these films were produced by Ukrainian-Canadian Vasile Avramenko. The first is entitled Cossacks in Exile (Zaporozhets za dunaem) (Edgar L. Ulmer, 1938), while the second is entitled Marusia (Leo Bulgakov, 1938). These films are in the Ukrainian language with English subtitles, were specifically made for the expatriate Ukrainian community in North America, and are rare examples of Ukrainian commercial filmmaking in North America.</p>;<p>Many of the films are fragments of larger works, but it is unclear if the complete films were ever shown as part of the travelling picture show.</p>;<p>The collection also contains a poster for Cossacks in Exile and an original cardboard box used to house one of the film reels.</p>
