The Orange Chronicles (97mins)

After the US Presidential Election, disillusioned Ukrainian-
American filmmaker, Damian Kolodiy, journeys to his family’
s homeland and finds himself in the middle of the Orange
Revolution where he witnesses the true meaning of
democracy. ORANGE CHRONICLES focuses on the
passionate people who filled the frozen streets of Kyiv in
protest of an unjust election and the corrupt government
that created it. Narrated by the filmmaker, who volunteered
as an election monitor, the documentary captures the
revolution from the inside out, and in the process, Kolodiy
rediscovers his own modern Ukrainian identity as does the
country itself.

"The Orange Chronicles"  A documentary by Damian
Kolodiy and Peter Zielyk. Produced and Directed by
Damian Kolodiy. Edited by Peter Zielyk.
