The last journalists to leave Mariupol show their experience in the Oscar-favorite documentary

A tragedy disappears the moment it stops appearing in the media. What is not seen does not exist, and what was news yesterday will be forgotten by everyone tomorrow. The pace of information is frenetic, and people soon become tired and desensitized to the topics that are repeated over and over again. When Russia began its invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the news and newspapers talked about nothing else. Two years later, almost no one remembers that the war is still active. The focus is now on Gaza, and tomorrow it will be somewhere else.

This disappearance makes it seem like things solve themselves, but nothing could be further from the truth. For this reason, director Mstyslav Chernov believes that it is important that people continue talking about Ukraine, and that is why it is important to have achieved the Oscar nomination for Best Documentary with 20 Days in Mariupol , which shows his journalistic work in the Associated Press alongside other journalists who went to cover the siege in what was also their own city. Chernov recorded how Russian bombs and tanks destroyed the streets he had played on as a child and decided he had to do something.
