The Birth of A Nation. Program 4, IndependenceDVD - 2015
"This balanced and highly informative four-part- documentary series provides an unprecedented look at the cultural and political history of Ukraine. Interviews with historians combined with unique archival footage paints a raw and immediate portrait of a nation dramatically fighting for and maintaining its independence." Program 4.: In the decades following the Yalta Conference and Soviet occupation, Ukraine succeeded in establishing itself on the international arena as an independent state. Its political system, however, did not avoid certain striking weaknesses. The attempt to falsify the results of the presidential elections in 2004 induced the outbreak of the Orange Revolution. Millions of people all over Ukraine rose against the authorities' abuse of power to express their will to live in a truly free and democratic country. A will that continues today.
