Our goal is to show the events that took place on Maidan to as many people around the world as possible.
The bravery, courage and patriotism of Ukrainian people standing ground for their freedom are inspiring.
Old democracies lived through the independence movement hundreds of years ago. Our exhibition gives an opportunity
to the citizens of the free world to imagine what that fight for freedom might have looked and felt like. Just look
in the eyes of the people on these pictures! That’s how the eyes of your ancestors looked like when they were ready to
give their lives for the freedom of future generations.
Sergey Melnikoff has been primarily filming nature over the past 30 years: mountains and deep oceans. However,
he was immediately attracted by an amazing visual transformation of stereotypically laidback and grounded Ukrainians
into simultaneously fearless and fearful characters, deep, complex and admirable.
Sergey brought to Maidan his talents of projecting the spirit onto the film, the spirit you can feel around you, as if you were there, on the streets: eyes full of hope that you can look into, minds free from subjugation to criminals that you can read, love for own country and its future that you can relate to.
We are looking forward to seeing you when we get on a world tour!
