Film Program: 20 DAYS IN MARIUPOLIS
Duration 1h 35min.
All movies are free of charge!
As the Russian invasion begins, a team of Ukrainian journalists (The Associated Press (AP)) trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol struggle to continue their work documenting the war’s atrocities.
As the only international reporters who remain in the city, they capture what later become defining images of the war: dying children, mass graves, the bombing of a maternity hospital, and more. 20 Days in Mariupol is Mstyslav Chernov’s first feature length film. Drawing on Chernov’s daily news dispatches and personal footage of his own country at war, it is a vivid, harrowing account of civilians caught in the siege, as well as a window into what it’s like to report from a conflict zone, and the impact of such journalism around the globe.
