One day in May..
Frontline Club, Oslo, filmed by Truls Lie.
Screening of short films from the cinema collective Babylon 13, and a part of the new film EuroMaidan (rough cut) from the Ukrainian DocuDays film festival. Followed by a debate about Maidan as a civil movement, and the future political perspectives of Ukraina.
Maidan means “square” in Ukrainian. On 30th November 2013 hundreds of thousands of people occupied the Square of Independence in Kiev to show their protest against the cruelty of the special police units. For millions of Ukrainians it is now a symbol of struggle against corruption, dictatorship and lawlessness of the regime.
