The trailer for Netflix's next original documentary has some harrowing — but important — images.
Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom chronicles a 93-day period in 2013 and 2014.
It features interviews with protestors, on-the-ground footage, and a "grand scale" look at the violent conflict.
The documentary witnesses the formation of a new civil rights movement in Ukraine. What started as peaceful student demonstrations supporting European integration morphed into a full-fledged violent revolution calling for the resignation of the nation's president. The film captures the remarkable mobilization of nearly a million citizens from across the country protesting the corrupt political regime that utilized extreme force against its own people to suppress their demands and freedom of expression.
The harrowing documentary is set to make its world premiere at the 72nd Venice Film Festival in September
