Dir. Sergei Loznitsa. 2014. 131 mins. DCP. In Ukrainian and Russian with English subtitles. Sergei Loznitsa’s acclaimed and instantly influential documentary chronicles the civil uprising that toppled the government of Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovich (events that presaged Russian incursions, aggressions, and the current war). Filmed in stunning long takes, sans commentary, Maidan is a record of a momentous historical event and an extraordinary study of the popular uprising as a social, cultural, and philosophical phenomenon. Modern Ukraine as a resilient, self-actualized democratic society emerges here, in real time, before Loznitsa’s camera.
