Maidan is a chronicle of the civil uprising against the regime of President Yanukovych that took place in Kiev (Ukraine) in the winter of 2013/14. The film follows the progress of the revolution: from peaceful rallies, half a million strong, in the Maidan square, to the bloody street battles between protesters and riot police. Written by Cannes Film Festival.
Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion on the civilian impact and the revolution’s legacy with Bridget Kendall MBE (1974 Modern Languages), BBC diplomatic correspondent and LMH Honorary Fellow; Tim Judah, reporter and political analyst for The Economist, and Ben Robinson (1992 PPE), photojournalist.
