Ukranian Filmmaker Oleg Sentsov jailed in Russia


Citing terror offences, a Russian court has sentenced the outspoken filmmaker to twenty years in jail, according to THE GUARDIAN. Many have claimed the sentence to be overzealous. Other international filmmakers, such as Pedro Almadovar, Ken Loach, Mike Leigh and Wim Wenders have stepped up and spoken out against the detainment, some going so far as to sign a petition for his release.
