It took 93 days for Ukraine’s initially peaceful student
demonstrations to turn into a full-fledged revolution ripe with violence and mayhem.
“Winter on Fire,” a Netflix original documentary, takes viewers to
the heart of the country’s fight for freedom and provides a glimpse at the
turmoil citizens have faced.
Evgeny Afineevsky and Den Tolmor serve as producers for the
documentary, which chronicles the events in 2013 and 2014 that see the peaceful
demonstrations supporting European integration turn into an intense, violent
revolution demanding the resignation of the Ukrainian president. Filmmakers spoke with protesters, activists, medical workers
and journalists representing the many classes and generations who have firmly
stood their ground in the face of bloodshed and despair, providing “Winter on Fire” with the ability to document such a grand movement.
“Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom”
premieres exclusively on Netflix on October 9. Take a look at the trailer
