ALL THINGS ABLAZE

 

This film is not about the revolution that changed Ukraine this winter. Not exactly. It rather shows

a universal pattern of particular kind of uprisings - those ones that end with bloodshed. At first, the noble endeavor for freedom collides with the dark force of repressive rulers. Then eventually, after much confusion and chaos,

the righteous anger of people changes to pure outrage. And when the first casualties on both sides fall, no matter how black and white it seems from outside, the edge between good and bad blurs when one looks from

the epicenter of a battle. And finally, all things ablaze.
