Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for FreedomReviewer: Ruben Schönefeld
With elections going on right now in Ukraine, this was a much-needed look back at the uprising of late 2013 and early 2014. While I followed much of it on the news in daily summaries, it is a different story completely to watch everything unfold with cameras and interviews right in the moment. It's heartbreaking to see how much so many have risked for a chance to improve their country and open it up more to democracy while we in the West, Europe and the USA, have a hard time to even care about their own democracy enough to show up to elections. The footage is quite graphic at times, so be warned.
