Oleksandr, Aleksey and Dmitry, the creators of the film, are lifelong friends and colleagues who work as photo reporters for many years. When they switched to filmmaking to be able to tell a bigger story, it came naturally, and their photo journalistic approached has become something that defines their cinematographic style. The famous motto of Robert Capa still perfectly works for them: 'If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough'.
Making The Film
They say that the Ukrainian nation was reborn in this revolution. And so, that the sacrifice of
the Heavenly Hundred was not in vain. We wonder what those people who were killed would have replied to this if they could speak. We have many other unanswered questions at the moment. So, we do the only thing we feel we have the right to do showing in details what we have seen with our own eyes at the epicenter of the fight, not turning our cameras away, either from something ridiculously beautiful, equally ugly or deafeningly dreadful that happened in front of them.
