This is a one off event outside of London and a chance for everyone to see this stunning film with the director present and hosting a Q+A session.
The Ukrainian Centre will be open from 6:30pm so please arrive early to avoid dissapointment. Any donations recieved will go to CYM (Ukrainian Youth Association) and AUGB (Association of Ukrainians in GB) fundraising activities for Ukraine.
Chronicling events that unfolded over 93 days in 2013 and 2014, ‘Winter on Fire’ witnesses the formation of a new civil rights movement in Ukraine. What started as peaceful student demonstrations in favour of further European integration became a huge civil movement involving millions of Ukrainians following brutal government oppression. The film captures the remarkable mobilization of over a million citizens from across the country protesting the corrupt political regime that utilized extreme force against its own people to suppress their demands and freedom of expression.
***Please note the film contains scenes of strong real violence and is rated as suitable for ages 15 and above. The film is around 90 minutes long***
