Kan-Kan showing to benefit democracy effort in Ukraine

Kan-Kan Cinema and Brasserie has scheduled a two-night screening of Maidan, a documentary about the 2014 revolution in Ukraine that led to the pro-Western government that is currently in charge today.

During the 2014 Maidan revolution, more than 100 protesters were killed and hundreds were injured by members of the paramilitary police force.

Directed by Sergei Loznitsa, the documentary will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 14, and Tuesday, March 15. Tickets will be $12 and all proceeds will go toward Razom, an organization that was created in 2014 to spread democracy in Ukraine.

Since the Russian invasion, Razom has started providing medical supplies to those who are injured. “We are all very troubled and concerned by what is happening to the people of Ukraine,” said Kan-Kan Programming Director Daniel Arthur Jacobson. “We not only wanted to help, but we also wanted to give our audience a chance to learn about Ukraine’s recent history.”

To purchase tickets for Maidan, visit kankanindy.com or the box office during business hours. For more information about Razom, visit razomforukraine.org.
