Join DocHouse for this exclusive screening of one of the most highly anticipated docs of the year. Chronicling the civil uprising against the regime of president Yanukovych that took place in Kiev’s main square last winter, Director Sergei Loznitsa presents a powerful document of a historic turning point for Ukraine. Epic in scale, breathtakingly cinematic, and critically urgent Maidan is a portrait of an awakening nation rediscovering its identity.

“Astounding, terrifying, beautiful” Nick James, Sight & Sound

“This stunning, epic-scaled film harkens back to the heroic, journalistic roots of documentary-making and yet feels ineffably modern and formally daring.” The Hollywood Reporter

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Raisa Sidenova and Joanna Szostek.
