Vladimir Kara-Murza

Nemtsov, a documentary film about a vocal opponent of Vladimir Putin’s regime, directed by his friend and colleague Vladimir Kara-Murza, will be screened on Tuesday, Jan. 30, at 7:30 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium, Kirner-Johnson Building. This is a change in location.  The film is in Russian, with English subtitles. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the director. The event is free and open to the public.

Nemtsov chronicles a remarkable political life. In February 2015, Nemtsov was shot and killed on a bridge next to the Kremlin. The film is a story told by those who knew Boris Nemtsov at different times: when he was a young scientist and took his first steps in politics; when he held high government offices and was considered Boris Yeltsin’s heir apparent; when he led Russia’s democratic opposition to Vladimir Putin. The film contains rare archival footage, including from the Nemtsov family. Nemtsov is not about death, but about the life of a man who could have been president of Russia.

The event is sponsored by the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center.
