20 Days in Mariupol

1h 35m War, Political, Human Rights, Crime 2023

Seasoned war journalist and first-time feature director Chernov uses his personal footage and daily dispatches for The Associated Press to offer a vivid and harrowing account of the siege of Mariupol. Through his lens, we see the toll of war on civilians, the horrors of dying children, mass graves, and the bombing of a maternity hospital. As the only international reporters who remain in the city, Chernov and a team of AP journalists capture defining images of the war that made headlines around the world. This film not only provides a window into the brutal reality of conflict zones but also highlights the importance of journalism in shaping our understanding of global events. With powerful storytelling and gripping cinematography, this film is a testament to the courage and resilience of those caught in the crossfire of war.
