On October 3, 2014, Yuriy Gruzinov, a cinematographer with Bablyon’13, presented a series of documentary shorts from the project Cinema of a Civil Protest, about the revolution and conflict in Ukraine.
Babylon’13’s Manifesto states:
It is a notable fact, that the driving power of the civil protest is the generation formed within the timeframe of independence. The generation that may be called the one of immediate action, and which deems basic European values as determinant and hence is ready to protect them.
The new civil society generates meaningful ideas. But at the moment there are too little of those, who are ready to fulfil these ideas. This circle has to grow and then we’ll get a chance to persuade the whole Ukraine, that time has come to begin vast social reforms. And, strictly speaking, a documentary is a tool that is able to change people’s perception of reality
Here are some of the documentaries Gruzinov presented:
