FREEDOM ON FIRE: UKRAINE’S FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
NYC PREMIERE For his 2015 Oscar-nominated film Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom, filmmaker Evgeny Afineevsky memorably captured the key moments of the Maidan Revolution in 2013-14 that ushered in pro-democracy political change. In his latest film, his subject is exponentially even more urgent, as Ukraine faces an existential threat when Russia launches its full-scale invasion in early 2022. This is filmmaking from the heart, an impassioned view beyond the headlines to see another side of the human face of the mighty Ukrainian spirit. – Jaie Laplante
