Screening of Sentsov documentary

Free

SENTSOV DOCUMENTARY & DONBAS PHOTO EXHIBITION
Exhibition from 3pm
Film screening 5pm

In August 2015, Ukrainian film director and Maidan activist Oleg Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years in prison in Siberia for terrorism. He was charged with leading an anti-Russian terrorist movement and planning attacks on bridges, power lines and a monument of Lenin. Sentsov defends himself courageously and responds to the verdict with an emphatic denial of the crimes and instead accuses the accusers themselves.

In his documentary, Askold Kurov investigates the truth behind this political show-trial and documents the solidarity shown to Sentsov by filmmaking colleagues.

 

– This is a FREE free public screening
– Fundraising for Oleg Sentsov’s family during the screenings – we ask for donations that the AUV will pass on.
