This film is not about the revolution that changed Ukraine this winter. Not exactly. It is rather about a universal pattern of particular kind of revolutions – those ones that imply violence. It shows how the energy of a people full of endeavor for freedom collides with the dark force of repressive rulers; then how the righteous anger of the crowd clashes with the senseless guards of the regime, and changes to pure outrage; and when the first casualties on both sides fall, no matter how black and white it seems from outside, the edge between good and bad blurs when one looks from the epicenter of a battle. And finally, all things ablaze.
Film by Oleksandr Techynskyi, Aleksey Solodunov and Dmitry Stoykov.
