ReelTalk: 20 Days in Mariupol

Event • Jun 4

As part of our ReelTalk: Docuseries we will be hosting a screening of 20 Days in Mariupol on Tuesday, June 4 at 6:00 p.m. After the film there will be an open discussion with Ana Sazonov, a representative from Ukrainian Patriot, to dive deeper into the film and her organization.

About the film: An AP team of Ukrainian journalists trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol struggle to continue their work documenting atrocities of the Russian invasion. As the only international reporters who remain in the city, they capture what later become defining images of the war: dying children, mass graves, the bombing of a maternity hospital, and more.

After nearly a decade covering international conflicts, including the Russia-Ukraine war, for The Associated Press, 20 Days in Mariupol is Mstyslav Chernov’s first feature film. The film draws on Chernov’s daily news dispatches and personal footage of his own country at war. It offers a vivid, harrowing account of civilians caught in the siege, as well as a window into what it’s like to report from a conflict zone, and the impact of such journalism around the globe.
