Win­ter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Free­dom Avail­able on Net­flix and was so peace­ful that some said it looked more like a mu­sic fes­ti­val. With­out provo­ca­tion, mil­i­tary forces were sent in and used tear gas, ba­tons and un­due force to break up the gath­er­ing. This sparked what was to be­come the Ukrainian rev­o­lu­tion. Film maker Evgeny Afi­neevsky un­packs the 93 days of clashes in the streets of Kiev with an on-the­ground ap­proach that is more like that of a war correspondent. Win­ter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Free­dom makes for breath­less, in­ti­mate view­ing. – Grethe Koen
