In conversation with Sergei Loznitsa and Critic Neil Young

Structured solely through extended fixed shots filmed over a period of three months, this account of the riots in Kiev’s Maidan Square, which led to the ouster of Ukraine’s pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych, tracks with formalist rigor the trajectory from peaceful protest to violent confrontation. By placing the viewer in the midst of the masses without the guideposts of expert commentary or central personalities, Maidan provides an immersive experience and a bracing, timeless portrait of protest and revolution.
