a film by Sergey Loznitsa
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Sergei Loznitsa, Maidan chronicles the civil uprising that toppled the government of Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovich and has since developed into an international crisis between Russia and the West. Filmed in stunning long takes, sans commentary, Maidan is a record of a momentous historical event and an extraordinary study of the popular uprising as a social, cultural and philosophical phenomenon.
"An impressive, bold treatment of a complex subject. One of the few documentaries about a recent revolution that won't feel dated in five years."
"Starkly beautiful. Succeeds in chronicling a remarkable historical moment and delivering an emotional wallop. "
- Cinema Scope
"It's profoundly affecting, eerie and, at times, strangely beautiful."
- Kevin Maher, The Times (UK)
