Come and see with us a document of the war in Ukraine – Mariupolis 2 (2022). The last documentary by Mantas Kvedaravičius, who returned to the besieged eastern city of Mariupol earlier this year and was killed there. The film was conceived as a follow-up to his documentary Mariupolis (2016) and was finished by his partner and co-director Hanna Bilbrova.
“In Mariupolis 2, we’re looking at vérité snapshots of war as it happens, and that’s a thing of value. You see small events here and feel them — life as it’s lived during wartime — that you won’t see on CNN.”
The screening is preceded by a conversation with Ukrainian students at Williams.
The event is sponsored by: the Department of German and Russian, the Center for Global Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, the Global Studies Program, the History Department, and the Lecture Committee
