First screened in September 2014
Director: Sergei Loznitsa. Documentary following the independence protests and military pushbacks in Ukraine in 2013 and 2014.

Twitter Capsule: Valuable series of static, Wiseman-like panoramas of buildup and conflict—a style with pros and cons for filming revolution.

VOR:   I think we'll be happy to have this as candid if selective footage of the Ukrainian demonstrations but I'll keep awaiting more trenchant analyses and capacious points of view.
