Maidan
MAIDAN chronicles the Ukrainian civil uprising that took place in the winter of 2013/14. Following the progress of the revolution, from peaceful rallies that were half a million strong in number in the Maidan square, to the bloody street battles between the protestors and riot police, MAIDAN is a portrait of an awakening nation, rediscovering its identity.
Director Sergei Loznitsa rises above current political issues and looks at the nature of the popular uprising as a social, cultural and philosophical phenomenon. A powerful mix of enthusiasm, heroic struggle, terror, courage, aspiration, people's solidarity, folk culture, passion and self-sacrifice, MAIDAN, which premiered at Cannes, is a stunning cinematic canvas that combines classical filmmaking and documentary urgency.
