Released on the same day around the world, the film will show a series of events that occurred between 2013 and 2014 over the course of 93 days lovelies, as the civil rights movement happened in Ukraine. With a number of protests and student demonstrations that soon led into violence the film shows the different sides and reactions to the people that were experience it. 

The film which is due to be shown at the 72nd Venice Film Festival before it is released, is the third documentary from director Evgeny Afineevsky’s, who has made a number of features and short films over the years lovelies. 

“Evgeny has assembled a cinematic tribute to the heroism, spirit and determination of the Ukrainian people,” said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of Original Documentary Programming. “We are honored to provide a global platform for him to share his powerful narrative.”

“While we were filming unfathomably brutal attacks by the police on unarmed citizens, we weren’t thinking about how to get the best shots, only the importance of showing the ways in which the movement would forever change the country and the lives of its participants,” said director Evgeny Afineevsky. “We’re pleased that Netflix is enabling us to share the hard truth and shocking reality of this historical event with the rest of the world.”
