A film about the war in Donbas has won best documentary at a US film festival. “Breaking Point: War for Democracy in Ukraine” delves into the fallout of the Euromaidan revolution and the war that followed.

The film follows ordinary people who risk their lives to defend and rebuild Ukraine. Eighty-six people were interviewed about their experiences during EuroMaidan and the war in the East. Three-time academy award-winning director Mark Jonathan Harris and acclaimed Ukrainian director Oles Sanin co-directed this intimate look at sacrifice.

    Even the shorts in the clip are inspiring. Will this film be available in the UK?

    Funny how I don’t think a film about the DNR/LPRs struggle will get an award.
    Except inside of Russia of course.

    Hopefully this gets more circulation and exposure than ‘Winter on Fire’ did.

      Its good that Ukrainian film-makers weren’t discouraged and are producing a steady stream of good work. Sometimes quantity is necessary to get quality.
