Official Selection: Doc Leipzig
All Things Ablaze is a visually powerful and deeply visceral fly on the wall documentary that positions the audience amongst the Ukranian protestors in the winter of 2013-2014.
Speeches are made, demonstrators wave banners, but finally all things transform to chaos, the police and protestors size one-another up, before anger is unleashed and the streets turn to battlefields.
Shot by camera crews located deep within the crowds, All Things Ablaze follows the events unleashed in the winter, not as a political analysis but as a study in people and society in a world where all things are ablaze.
A unique film, All Things Ablaze creates a truly cinematic- tableaux of the protests and a world in which violence explodes in city streets and squares. Free of direct narrative and editorialising the film, allows events to speak for themselves, and audiences pay witness to history as it unfolds on the streets.
