In Lviv, MIP Presents Film "How the War Began. Film Chronicles. Witnesses"
On 14 June 2019, the documentary film “How the War Began. Film Chronicles. Witnesses,” produced with the support of the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine, was presented at the Territory of Terror memorial museum.
“As repressions gain momentum in occupied Crimea, this film serves as a reminder of how Russia’s crime against Ukraine began. Of course, film cannot stop repressions. Still, it is hoped that citizens of our country should know the truth about the fake ‘referendum’, Crimean resistance, the crimes that Russia commits on a daily basis and, strangely enough, seeks to come clean of,” the First Deputy Minister of Information Policy of Ukraine, Emine Dzhaparova, was quoted as saying.
“How the War Began. Film Chronicles. Witnesses” is the first episode in the documentary film cycle created with the Ministry’s support.
The cycle includes two films, with the second film titled “The Onslaught. Donbas.” The films tell the story of people who witnessed or participated in the events in Ukraine that marked the beginning of covert Russian-Ukrainian war, covering the period from the burial of the Heavenly Hundred to the first victories of volunteer battalions and the liberation of Mariupol.
The first film that was presented at the museum shows the events that marked a sort of “tectonic shift”—from the Heavenly Hundred to the beginning of the onslaught in Crimea. It features Crimeans, Ukrainian citizens—students, members of the Crimean Tatar community, and volunteers—those who witnessed Crimean occupation; those who brings closer the peninsula’s return home, to Ukraine.
