A chronicle of the civil uprising against the regime of President Yanukovych that took place in Kyiv in the winter of 2013/14. The film shows the course of the revolution from peaceful rallies and half a million people gathered on Maidan Square to bloody street fights between protesters and riot police. MAIDAN is a portrait of an awakened nation. A nation that has realized its identity. Director Sergey Loznitsa rises above current political issues, he observes the nature of the popular uprising as a social, cultural and philosophical phenomenon. A powerful combination of enthusiasm, heroic resistance, terror, courage, aspirations, human solidarity, folk culture, passion and self-sacrifice. MAIDAN is a unique cinematic canvas, which combines classic film style and documentary relevance.
