Winter On Fire: The Unifying and Inspiring Lesson From Ukraine’s Maidan Revolution

January 21, 2016

It has been two years since Maidan Square in Kiev burned during the police crackdown on pro-EU protesters, and yet the memory of events there still burns bright in the hearts and minds of many in Ukraine and beyond.

Now “Winter On Fire,” a documentary about Ukraine’s Euromaidan protest movement, has been nominated for an academy award. This week Boston College Professor Matt Sienkiewicz and The Interpreter’s Managing Editor James Miller discuss the film with the documentary’s director, Evgeny Afineevsky, and David Resha, Assistant Professor of Media and Film Studies at Birmingham-Southern College.
