Oscar nominee '20 Days in Mariupol' now in cinemas!

"20 Days in Mariupol," which will be released in cinemas nationwide on March 8, is a harrowing cinematic indictment of Russia: a record of the destruction of the titular city at the risk of his life made by the only correspondent who remained there until the end. This cinematic masterpiece executed with impressive formal discipline holds you in suspense from the first minutes to the finale. Few filmmakers show the merciless cruelty of war with such power. Chernov and crew, however, do not do so to shock. They intend to leave a testimony - and shake the conscience of the world.     

The documentary is a winner of the world's most important film festivals, such as Sundance, CPH:DOX and IDFA, and a BAFTA® Award winner. The film was also appreciated by Polish audiences - the audience and the jury of the Main Competition of the 23rd WATCH DOCS IFF, and this weekend we will find out if it will also win an Oscar® in the "best feature documentary" category. 

The film is for adult audiences only. 

The WATCH DOCS Festival and the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights are distributors of the film.

Screening partners: Nowa Polszcza, Mieroszewski Center, Association of Studio Cinemas
