From acclaimed documentarian Sergei Loznitsa (State Funeral), Babi Yar. Context examines the perpetration and subsequent cover-up of one of the 20th century’s worst mass murders - the 1941 massacre of some 33,000 Jews at Kiev’s Babi Yar ravine.
With astonishing archival work, director Loznitsa assembles extraordinary footage of the German occupation of Ukraine, alongside witness testimonies of the massacre and the trials of its perpetrators. A deeply moving and essential piece of non-fiction filmmaking, Babi Yar. Context is a devastating document of human cruelty, and a reminder of the cost of concealing the past.
