This is a documentary reporting from the separatist held areas of east Ukraine. The separatists have strict control over the media and the citizens in their stronghold of Donetsk. I was given access to the region, but all my movements were controlled. We were taken from one bizarre situation to the next, so essentially made a film about this wild goose-chase and the totalitarianism of the "Donetsk People's Republic".

This segment originally aired December 19th 2016 on HBO.
