Description

NAVALNY (2022) takes viewers inside the careful investigation into the shocking and brazen 2020 assassination attempt against the late Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny, and who was behind it. Through his years-long campaign against corruption among Russia’s elites, Navalny developed powerful enemies. His publicized revelations, and calls for democratic reforms, enraged Vladimir Putin, who refused to even say his name in public.

In August 2020, Navalny was secretly poisoned with a military-grade chemical nerve agent in an elaborate attempt on his life. Despite denials from the Russian government, the poison was later linked to the Kremlin through investigations by international news organizations, including Bellingcat and CNN.

This 98-minute film is unrated.
