“Mstyslav Chernov’s immersive, shattering documentary recounting the invasion’s first weeks, “20 Days in Mariupol,” is a brutal, necessary, heart-pounding reminder of why the siege shocked the world, and what remains at stake whether you’re staying apprised or not. Acrid and harrowing, it’ll slap you awake.” – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
