Freedom on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom

Double Exposure - 114 mins
  • DIRECTOR: Evgeny Afineevsky
  • STARRING: Dmytro 'Orest' Kozatskyi, Evgeniy Maloletka, Nataliia Nagorna
Crafted from stark footage and exclusive interviews with people displaced by the enduring conflict, FREEDOM ON FIRE: UKRAINE’S FIGHT FOR FREEDOM reveals how the spirit of unity strengthens morale even amid the country’s darkest hours. When Vladimir Putin launched an unprovoked invasion of Ukraine in early 2022, its citizens instinctively renewed the survival strategies that sustained them eight years prior during the Maidan Uprising. This companion piece to director Evgeny Afineevsky’s Academy Awardnominated documentary Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom explores why a jubilant day on Kyiv’s Maidan square instigated warfare that has lasted the better part of a decade. Broadening his focus from a single city, Afineevsky and his veteran Winter on Fire crew turn their lenses on multiple countries, trailing both the Ukrainians trying to escape and those who have vowed to stay behind. A sweeping look at a humanitarian crisis, the documentary amplifies the views of children, mothers, soldiers, doctors, artists, volunteers, clergymen, and journalists who are transformed while witnessing ceaseless destruction and bloodshed. Featuring narration from Oscar-winning Dame Helen Mirren, FREEDOM ON FIRE is a saga of resilience that challenges the international community to oppose tyranny together.

Lowndes County and the Road to Black Power (African Diaspora FF)

90 mins
Last day
  • DIRECTOR: Sam Pollard & Geeta Gandbhir
Click HERE to BUY TICKETS! The passing of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 represented not the culmination of the Civil Rights Movement, but the beginning of a new, crucial chapter. Nowhere was this next battle better epitomized than in Lowndes County, Alabama, a rural, impoverished town with a vicious history of racist terrorism. In a town that was eighty percent Black but had zero Black voters, laws were just paper without power. This isn’t a story of hope but of action. Through first person accounts and searing archival footage, Lowndes County and the Road to Black Power tells the story of the local movement and young Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) organizers who fought not just for voting rights, but for Black Power in Lowndes County
