20 Days in Mariupol (full documentary) | FRONTLINE and The Associated Press

• Frontline PBS

Ukrainian journalist Mstyslav Chernov and his colleagues risk their lives to document Russia's siege of Mariupol in this FRONTLINE/AP documentary. The Guardian calls it "a brave, visceral, merciless masterpiece." The New York Times says, "Essential. A relentless and truly important documentary."

The award-winning documentary "20 Days in Mariupol" follows Chernov as he and his Ukrainian AP colleagues become trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol, struggling to continue their work documenting atrocities of the Russian invasion. The last international journalists remaining in the city as Russian forces close in, Chernov, photographer Evgeniy Maloletka and field producer Vasilisa Stepanenko capture what become some of the most defining images of the war: dying children, mass graves, the bombing of a maternity hospital, and more.

"20 Days in Mariupol" draws on Chernov's daily news dispatches and personal footage of his own country at war. The result is a raw and haunting account of a journalist risking his life to share the truth of the conflict with the world.
