MAIDAN

Official Selection Cannes Film Festival 2014 film will be presented by the Director, SERGEI LOZNITSA

MAIDAN chronicles a civil uprising which took place in Kiev (Ukraine) in the winter of 2013/14. The film follows the progress of the revolution: from peaceful rallies, half a million strong, in the Maidan square, to the bloody street battles between the protesters and riot police. MAIDAN is a portrait of an awakening nation, rediscovering its identity.

Director Sergei Loznitsa rises above current political issues and looks at the nature of the popular uprising as a social, cultural and philosophical phenomenon. A powerful mix of enthusiasm, heroic struggle, terror, courage, aspiration, people’s solidarity, folk culture, passion and self-sacrifice, MAIDAN is a stunning cinematic canvas combining classical film making style and documentary urgency.
