“20 Days In Mariupol” had its world premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award for World Cinema Documentary. The film follows an AP team of Ukrainian journalists trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol and struggling to continue documenting the atrocities of the Russian invasion. Director and writer Mstyslav Chernov was kind enough to talk with us about his work on the film as it draws on his daily news dispatches and personal harrowing footage of his own country at war. Please take a listen below and be sure to check out the film in theaters this weekend exclusively at Laemmle Monica Film Center in Los Angeles. Thank you, and enjoy!
