Is resistance in Russia possible? In this riveting chronicle of the attempted assassination of Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny and its aftermath, Canadian filmmaker Daniel Roher goes up-close with the man that the Kremlin hates the most. Winner of the 2022 Sundance Audience Award, the film follows Navalny—who remains persistently charismatic and affable—as he and his team root out the men in real time who nearly murdered him. In the process, they reveal the deep inner-workings of Russia’s malicious secret operations and the harrowing challenges of dissent in an authoritarian regime. An “essential Bourne-like thriller” (Time Out) that “hinges on one of the most remarkable moments ever seen in a documentary” (Indiewire), Navalny is a “must-watch” (Variety) “jaw-dropping profile in courage” (RogerEbert.com).
Join Doc10 for a screening of Navalny, followed by Q+A with Daniel Roher (Director), Langdon Page (Producer) & Maria Pevchikh (Investigative Journalist).
