20 Days in Mariupol – 2024 PBS Oscar Winning Documentary – Chicago – June 15

Join us for Day 2 of Ukrainian Film programming at the Ukrainian National Museum of Chicago

20 Days in Mariupol follows Friday’s screening of the Believe in Ukraine short film program rounding out the series by exploring Ukrainian perspectives not available in mainstream news coverage.


An AP team of Ukrainian journalists trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol struggle to continue their work documenting atrocities of the Russian invasion. As the only international reporters who remain in the city, they capture what later become defining images of the war: dying children, mass graves, the bombing of a maternity hospital, and more.

After nearly a decade covering international conflicts, including the Russia Ukraine war, for The Associated Press, 20 DAYS IN MARIUPOL is Mstyslav Chernov’s first feature film. The film draws on Chernov’s daily news dispatches and personal footage of his own country at war. It offers a vivid, harrowing account of civilians caught in the siege, as well as a window into what it’s like to report from a conflict zone, and the impact of such journalism around the globe.
