2016 Film Presentations

Freedom or Death

Directed by Damien Kolodiy

The film is told from the point of view of Ukrainian-American filmmaker Damian Kolodiy. His voice narrates the film, which 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. A 25 minute video on the screening of the film in the war zone (ATO) will also be screened.

Damien Kolodiy’s previous film, Orange Chronicles, was shown at ASN 2006.

Director Damien Kolodiy will take part in a Q&A session following the screening.
