- Directed by: Sergey Loznitsa
- UK release: 20 February 2015
Documentary about the 20 Feb 2014 protests in Kiev's Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square), in which over 50 people died.

The result is slow, disorienting and brilliant, as the protest changes from peaceful occupation to violent confrontation.
