Film Screening: "The Winter that Changed Us: The First Death"

The First Death is a short documentary film by Ukrainian independent film project Babylon'13, which details the Maidan movement's first casualty, Serhiy Nigoyan, who died on January 22nd, 2014 from gunshot wounds. Through interviews and live coverage of the events, the film makes the case that the deaths of Nigoyan and other protesters served as the catalyst that turned the movement from a demonstration into a revolution.

Film Director Yuriy Gruzinov was joined by Wilson Center Senior Scholar and Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine William Miller to discuss the movie and the events in Kyiv that sparked the crisis.
