Filmed in secret, this revealing and suspenseful documentary on Alexei Navalny – the Russian opposition leader poisoned with a nerve agent – won the Audience Award, Sundance 2022.
In August 2020, Navalny fell seriously ill on a flight to Moscow. Following an emergency landing in Siberia, he was taken to a local hospital before eventually being evacuated to Berlin where doctors confirmed he’d been poisoned with Novichok – a toxin implicated in attacks on other opponents of the Russian government. As he recuperates in Germany with his family, Navalny seeks to uncover the truth behind the plot to silence him, with the help of Bellingcat journalist Christo Grozev. Documentarian Daniel Roher films the charismatic and handsome Russian, by turns charming and forceful, as he uncovers shocking facts and exposes them to the world. Don’t miss this unique and highly pertinent documentary.
The comparison to a Hollywood plot is apt; one scene in which Navalny prank calls his would-be assassins and tricks one to reveal the details of the plot… left my jaw on the floor.
Adrian Horton, the Guardian
Navalny has all the drama of a spy novel, more in fact.
Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
Navalny successfully doubles as an espionage procedural and a portrait of one man’s war against an authoritarian regime. It balances a magazine-style profile and a probing independent inquiry into a brutal state-sanctioned assassination attempt.
Vikram Murthi, Vanity Fair
