Movie summary: On the eve of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, a team of Ukrainian journalists from the Associated Press travels to the strategically important port city of Mariupol. When the city is besieged and attacked, the journalists are trapped. Bombs fall; inhabitants try to flee. Access to electricity, food, water and medicine is cut off. But the team struggles to document the atrocities of the Russian invasion and get their footage out to the public. As the only international reporters in the city, they capture what will later become the defining images of the war: dying children, mass graves, the bombing of a maternity clinic and more. They directly refute Putin’s disinformation. But Russia’s soldiers are after them.
🤝 The event is organized in collaboration with Anastasiya Ponomaryova and 2402 forum.
