20 Days in Mariupol - First Screening
Age Group:Adults (Ages 18+)
The first of two back to back showings.
On the date of the second anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, watch an Academy Award nominated documentary from Frontline that "offers a grueling but vital look at the devastating impact of war" (Rotten Tomatoes).
"An AP team of Ukrainian journalists trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol struggle to continue their work documenting atrocities of the Russian invasion. As the only international reporters who remain in the city as Russian forces close in, they capture what become some of the most defining images of the war: dying children, mass graves, the bombing of a maternity hospital, and more.
After nearly a decade covering international conflicts, including the Russia-Ukraine war, for The Associated Press, Mstyslav Chernov makes his feature film debut with 20 Days in Mariupol. The film draws on Chernov’s daily news dispatches and personal footage of his own country at war. It offers a vivid, harrowing account of civilians caught in the siege, as well as a window into what it’s like to report from a conflict zone, and the impact of such journalism around the globe" (Frontline).
There will be two screenings of the film, this one begins at 1pm. Click here to register for the 2:30 screening.
