The film “20 Days in Mariupol” was nominated for an Oscar.

The documentary film “20 Days in Mariupol” about the first days of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022 has been nominated for an Oscar in the category “Best Documentary”.

The same category included the films “Bob Vine: People’s President”, “Eternal Memory”, “Four Daughters” and “Kill the Tiger”.

“20 days in Mariupol” was filmed by a team of reporters from the Associated Press agency, including director Mstislav Chernov, photographer Evgeny Maloletka, and producer Vasylis Stepanenko.

The group was besieging the city for 20 days and had to leave when the Russian troops came too close to the city and seized part of it. Journalists feared that the footage, if discovered, would most likely be destroyed by Russian military personnel.

“20 Days in Mariupol” has already been awarded the Pulitzer Prize. In January, the film won the Audience Award at the American independent film festival “Sundance”.

You can watch the film on the free streaming platform Votvot.
