Freedom or Death! Trailer (2015)
Trailer for the documentary Freedom or Death!, which screened at the Phoenix Film Festival.
Documentary focuses on the revolutionary events in Kyiv, Ukraine in 2014. The film is told from the point of view of Ukrainian-American filmmaker Damian Kolodiy. The film focuses on events in Kyiv, starting with the peaceful demonstrations in support of Ukraine signing a free trade agreement with the European Union. The film examines how those peaceful demonstrations escalate into a violent conflict between Ukrainian activists and the Ukrainian government headed by corrupt President Victor Yanukovych. Through on the ground footage and Kolodiy’s voiceover, the film is a chronological and forensic portrait of how a civil uprising in Kyiv has become a hybrid war with Russia that has had global ramifications.
