On the grey morning of 20 February 2014, government police forces opened live ammunition fire against protesters armed with bats and wooden shields. Fifty people died, and several days after, President Viktor Yanukovych fled to Russia. We reconstruct the street where the bloodshed happened, as it is today, using photogrammetry and CGI. The viewers of the experience can follow the path of the protesters that were reclaiming the street from the police forces. The story is a chronicle of that day with a strong emphasis on archival footage. The memories of the people who were there are captured as 360° video interviews recorded in the places they were on that tragic morning.
