20 Days in Mariupol (+ Q/A)

TrailerTickets
Indringend, filmisch verslag van de onwerkelijk wrede Russische inval in de Oekraïense stad Marioepol, waar AP-journalist Mstyslav Chernov en zijn team hun schokkende beelden uit de belegerde stad weten te versturen om aan de wereld te tonen.

In voice-over geeft Chernov zacht sprekend commentaar over zijn emoties bij de twintig dagen, die deze doodgewone stad in een kapotgeschoten ruïne veranderden.

Deze laatste vertoning van 20 Days in Mariupol wordt afgesloten met een Q/A met de volgende gasten:


  • Nataliya Lushnikova (postdoctoral researcher at the department of Built Environment in the TU/E)

  • Dmitry Boguslavsky (Volunteer Stichting Oekraïners in Eindhoven)

  • Yevhen Mazhuha (in Army force of Ukraine feb 2022 - april 2023)



''20 Days in Mariupol offers a grueling but vital look at the devastating impact of war.''

It was February two years ago when we witnessed the horrible beginning of the full scale Russian invasion on Ukraine. One of the most tragic events happened in Mariupol, and now you can also see with your own eyes what life under attack is.

On the eve of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a team of Ukrainian journalists enter the strategic eastern port city of Mariupol. During the subsequent siege and assault, as bombs fall, inhabitants flee, and access to electricity, food, water, and medicine are severed, the team — the only international journalists left — struggles to cover the war atrocities and to transmit their footage out. Eventually surrounded by Russian soldiers, they shelter in a hospital, unsure of how they’ll escape.

20 DAYS IN MARIUPOL is not an avarage war doc.  Ukrainian filmmaker and journalist Mstyslav Chernov offers a window into the practices of conflict zone reporters and an unflinching, anguishing account of the 20 days he and colleagues Evgeniy Maloletka and Vasilisa Stepanenko spent covering Mariupol.

Their footage, widely disseminated through news media, not only documents the death and destruction — corpses in the streets and mass graves, the bombing of apartment buildings and a maternity ward, doctors despairing children they couldn’t save — but directly refutes Russian misinformation. Seeing so much death, Chernov wonders how capturing any more could make a difference. But residents implore them to let the world bear witness.
