Winter On Fire Ukraine’s Fight For Freedom: Free Special Screening Event

Plus Q&A with Director Evgeny Afineevsky


Event Details

“Rarely has a documentary achieved such immediacy […] It’s more than just a portrait of terror, anger, desperation and resolve; it communicates those emotions directly, into the bloodstream and nervous system of the audience” The New York Times

Tickets – Free 

The Princess Theatre with Natalie Kulchytska will be hosting a special screening of Winter On Fire with an online Q&A afterwards. Everyone is welcome to attend the screening and take part in the Q&A with the film’s Oscar nominated Director, Evgeny Afineevsky. This is a great opportunity to come together as a community, in solidarity with Ukraine and to meet those Ukrainians that have been sponsored by families in Somerset.

We are thrilled that Natalie, who has lived experience as a Ukrainian national, has been able to establish a relationship with us through local supporters of The Princess.

Winter On Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom is an Oscar nominated documentary by Evgeny Afineevsky detailing the unrest in Ukraine between 2013 and 2014 as student demonstrations supporting European integration grew into a violent revolution calling for the resignation of President V. Yanukovych.

It premiered in 2015 at the Venice International Film Festival. It won the People’s Choice Award for best documentary at the Toronto International Film Festival and was also nominated for an Academy Award for best documentary in 2016.

We encourage anyone interested in film making as a hobby or career to join us, as well as anyone that would like to show their support to the people of Ukraine. 

This exciting event has been organised by Natalie Kulchytska who has been recently sponsored by a family in Somerset along with her young son. There will be an opportunity to donate directly towards a humanitarian cause in Ukraine that Natalie has set up.

For those that cannot make the screening evening, Evgeny’s powerful Documentary has been made available to watch for free on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/yzNxLzFfR5w

The Film Contains violent imagery in the context of protest and adult language. It has been rated 15 by the BBFC
