Freedom on Fire Film Screening at Mill Valley Film Festival
October 11 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm$16.50
The Freedom on Fire film is screening at the Mill Valley Film Festival, sponsored by the Arizae Foundation with special guest Oscar®-nominated Director, Evgeny Afineevsky.
“FREEDOM ON FIRE: UKRAINE’S FIGHT FOR FREEDOM” is a sequel to Director Evgeny Afineevsky’s Oscar®-nominated 2015 doc Winter on Fire. This compelling, you-are-there dispatch chronicles Russian president Vladimir Putin’s aggression against the Ukrainian people and its aftermath, with previously unseen footage of bombings, violence, and mass evacuations interspersed among testimonials from witnesses and survivors. Afineevsky also pays tribute to the extraordinary character of his fellow citizens, from a stand-up comedy show which mocks the Russian Army to doctors setting up makeshift sanctuaries to everyday people shouting down Russian soldiers. This is what bravery and resistance looks like.
