Summary Today, we sit down with Mstyslav Chernov, who stayed behind with his team during the siege of Mariupol during russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine to report the realities on the ground. He takes us on a deep dive into the intricacies of editing this historically important film; explains the message he wanted to convey; and describes his understanding of his responsibilities to the subjects in the film, to the audience who watches it now, and to the those who will watch it in 100 years. Ukraine submitted 20 Days in Mariupol for a 2024 Academy Award in the documentary film category. The film won the World Cinema Audience Award at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, and has been nominated for five Critics' Choice Documentary Awards. In 2023, Chernov won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, received the George Polk Award for War Reporting, and was named Best International Director at the Doc Edge film festival.
