A Rising Fury
August 31 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Lighthouse International Film Society Presents: Wednesday, August 31 at 7:30 p.m. A Rising Fury
In 2013, to document the “Maidan Revolution,” Ukraine’s peaceful protests against Russian interference in their politics, director Lesya Kalynska began documenting the struggle. The following year, as Russia invaded Crimea and Donbas, Ms. Kalynska kept her cameras rolling, capturing much of the lead-up to the full-fledged invasion and catastrophic war they face today.
Following the lives of an idealistic young couple caught up in the conflict, A Rising Fury is an intimate, cinema vérité portrait of the lovers’ perseverance and courage. Filmed over 8 years, with harrowing footage from war-torn frontlines, A Rising Fury honors their sacrifice in defense of the land they love, its democracy, and the survival of their relationship.
