In 2015 - Netflix released a documentary called Winter On Fire - on how a civil rights movement erupts in the Ukraine after a peaceful student protest quickly morphs into a violent revolution.
Winter on Fire was criticised saying:
Winter on Fire is an "accessible film, with greater TV appeal, but it’s also more limited by its insistence on shoehorning everything into one perspective, albeit a perspective shared by many"
Another commentator wrote:
What is so striking about Winter on Fire is not how it whitewashes the story of Maidan but the fact that Afineevsky, the director, brazenly admits it. An interview with US-funded Radio Free Europe brought up the claim that the film “glossed over” Right Sector, a neo-Nazi organization that played a prominent role in Maidan and was later accused of torture, among other crimes, by Amnesty International. “You know what? Right Sector, they actually fought for everything like everybody else. They were a part of these people,” scoffed Afineevsky. What Afineevsky meant by this answer is unclear, much like the statement that he is “a filmmaker not a journalist,” which Radio Free Europe said he gave in response to charges that he oversimplified the narrative.
When this aired on REN TV - the network had to step up security due to threats.
This had a delayed release in the English speaking world due to Oliver Stone struggling to get a Western Distributor.
My question is: What are the reasons Oliver Stone's documentary 'Ukraine On Fire' had trouble getting a US distributor?
