The documentary was created based on materials shot by a war correspondent in Russian-occupied Mariupol.

On Monday, September 18, the Ukrainian Oscar Committee (UOC) chose a film that will represent Ukraine at the Oscars. This is stated on the organization’s website.

This is a film about 20 days in Mariupol by Ukrainian journalist and photographer Mstislav Chernov. It was presented in the Best International Feature Film category.

It is noted that the film shows the beginning of a full-scale invasion, the bombing of residential buildings, a maternity hospital and the rescue of the author of the film and his colleagues from the Associated Press from a city that surrounded by Russian troops.

“The film was selected by voting by the members of the Ukrainian Oscar Committee, the head of which is Valentin Vasyanovich,” the statement said.

It was previously reported that the UOC named the five films included in the national selection for the prestigious Academy Award.

The Oscars ceremony has been postponed to 2024 due to strikes in Hollywood.
