director:
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. “Comprised almost entirely of static master shots, Maidan exhibits a consciously rigorous style that is directly linked to the idea of the masses....Epic in scale, breathtakingly cinematic, and critically urgent, Maidan is a major work of our time.” (AndrĂ©a Picard, Toronto International Film Festival)
