"Watching Chernov’s film is a humanitarian duty." - Tomris Laffly, Harper's Bazaar
"A harrowing miracle of a film." - Nick Allen, rogerebert.com
Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022. On the eve of war, a team of Ukrainian journalists trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol struggle to continue their work documenting the war’s atrocities and delivering their coverage to the wider world. Ukrainian filmmaker Mstyslav Chernov fearlessly chronicles their courage on the frontline, the daily challenges they face to their reporting and their lives, and the grim realities of war. Content consideration: includes footage of war and loss of life.
