20 Days in Mariupol received the Pulitzer Prize in May 2023 as "a recognition of the bravery and professionalism of the producer team in showing the horrific reality of the war in Ukraine."

?️ “20 Days in Mariupol” is a documentary by Ukrainian war correspondent, writer, and AP videographer Mstyslav Chernov, focusing on the siege of Mariupol in February-March 2022 during the full-scale Russian invasion.

? As the only international reporters who remain in the city, an AP team of Ukrainian journalists capture what later become defining images of the war: dying children, mass graves, the bombing of a maternity hospital, and more.

⏳On the 21st day after the invasion began, they managed to leave through the humanitarian corridor. Since then, there has not been a single journalist in Mariupol.

?️Tens of thousands of civilians were able to leave only after March 15. The final death toll is still unknown, but it is likely more than 100,000 victims.

?️ After the “20 Days in Mariupol” premiere, a public discussion will take place, featuring the participation of the heroes from the movie and the film team. The main focus of this discussion is to ensure that these human stories are preserved and shared with the public.
