John Beck-Hofmann’s 56-minute documentary Maidan Massacre (2014) is described on the Internet Movie Database:

‘Maidan Massacre’ is an investigative documentary into the shootings which occurred on February 20th, 2014, when nearly 50 people were gunned down on the streets of Kiev’s Independence Square. The massacre was the result of Euromaidan, a massive three-month-long protest against the former Government of Viktor Yanukovich and his decision to reject a trade deal with the European Union. Although no thorough investigation had been conducted, the blame was immediately placed on the police officers who served under Yanukovich. This film investigates the scene of the crime, interviewing those who were there when the shootings occurred, and seeks to answer the questions as to who really was shooting that day on Kiev’s Independence square – a place known to the people of Ukraine, as Maidan.

The film is broadcast on YouTube on February 2015:
