About the screening
Afineevsky (Freedom on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom) traces the war from the conflict in the Donbas region beginning in 2014, immediately after the Maidan Uprising, to Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine early this year.

Afineevsky and his team turn their lenses on multiple countries, following the stories of those Ukrainians trying to escape and those who have vowed to stay behind. The documentary amplifies the views of children, mothers, soldiers, doctors, artists, volunteers, clergymen and journalists who are transformed while witnessing ceaseless destruction and bloodshed. Featuring narration by Helen Mirren, Freedom on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom is a testament to resilience and opposition to tyranny.
