New film: Crossroads – Ukraine and the Triumph of Democracy

Just released and now available on DVD. Looks like a fabulous film!

Through the eyes of six Ukrainians,"CROSSROADS" examines the history and current events of Ukraine as context for exploring the even deeper question of democracy and what it means to be – or to become – an autonomous, free, and self-governing people.

... [This one-hour documentary is] about Ukraine’s 2004 Orange Revolution, contextualizing the struggle for democracy within a history of outside encroachment and juxtaposing candid profiles of revolution participants with poetic footage taken by Ukrainian filmmaker Aleksandr Dovzhenko.

... The film has screened in Washington DC, New York, Los Angeles and London. It was an official selection at the 2006 Philadelphia Documentary and Fiction Festival and the 2006 Asheville Film Festival.
