20 DAYS IN MARIUPOL

Section: World Cinema Documentary Competition 

Director: Mstyslav Chernov

Logline: As Russia launches its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a crew of Ukrainian journalists trapped within the besieged metropolis of Mariupol battle to proceed their work documenting the warfare’s atrocities.

Panelists: Mstyslav Chernov (director, producer)

Next Screening: January 25, 3:00 p.m MST, Prospector Square Theatre, Park City

Key Quote: “That’s what I’m making an attempt to convey within the movie for the viewers — how simply residents, how Ukrainians really feel once they ask [the] query, ‘Why?’ When Marina… is shedding her [18-month-old] baby, Kiril. And we see that within the movie. She’s asking why? So that query I hold asking myself, why? And all Ukrainians are asking themselves why. And there is no such thing as a reply to that. That’s essentially the most terrifying factor when the struggling has no objective, it has no that means.” — Mstyslav Chernov
