People Who Came To Power. The path of war in Dombass, Ukraine
This film recreates the gradual transition of Donbass, Ukrania, from peaceful life to the state of war during March-April 2014.
Directors Oleksiy Radynski and Tomash Rafa follow the transformation of social protest into an armed revolt, supported by covert foreign invasion.
The premise doesn't focus on individual stories, instead showing the mechanisms of inflaming the war that lead to the social collapse.
