“A Documentary You’ll Likely Never See”
Ukraine. For centuries it has been at the center of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and access to the Black Sea 2014’s Maidan Massacre triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych and painted Russia as the perpetrator by Western media. But was it?
Ukraine on Fire … might change how people in the West perceive the conflict, but it’s unlikely to get much distribution since it contests the prevailing narrative. The film begins with gripping images of the violence that ripped through the capital city of Kiev during both the 2004 Orange Revolution and the 2014 removal of Yanukovich. It then travels back in time to provide a perspective that has been missing from mainstream versions of these events and even in many alternative media renditions.
