A Rising Fury FB3 | UNWLA - Ukrainian National Womens League of America

It’s a story about love, revolution, betrayal, and war told through intimate verité material.

A Rising Fury is the critically acclaimed feature documentary that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2022. The film reveals the true untold story of how the Russo-Ukrainian war began in 2014 and proves that it was prepared as far back as 2007. The film team followed several people for nearly 10 years from the Revolution of Dignity in 2013 to the battlefields in Eastern Ukraine, and during the full-scale invasion in 2022. A Rising Fury was nominated for best documentary and other top awards in nine international film festivals including Stockholm IFF, Warsaw IFF, Oslo Films from the South FF, Cleveland IFF, and won several awards including Best International Director and the Supreme Jury Award at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival in 2023. FILM THREAT gives it 5 stars and says it’s “A masterclass of documentary filmmaking… absolutely brilliant on every level. One of the best films of the year.”
