First look trailer for Netflix documentary ‘Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom’
Adding to its reputation for striking original programming, Netflix is getting ready to release its latest exclusive documentary, Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom.
Directed by Evgeny Afineevsky, the original doco – which will join the streaming service on Friday, October 9th – chronicles the events that unfolded in Ukraine over 93 days in 2013 and 2014.
Starting as peaceful student demonstrations supporting European integration, the turbulent period saw the formation of a civil rights movement in Ukraine, morphing into a fully-fledged, violent revolution calling for the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych.
Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom was filmed directly within this conflict zone, recording everything from the earliest demonstrations to interviews with those involved, be they protesters, activists, journalists, medical workers, artists, or clergy.
Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom will be available exclusively to Netflix subscribers from October 9th. Watch the first trailer for the documentary below.
