Russian political candidate Alexei Navalny helped galvanize opposition to Vladimir Putin in mass street demonstrations. Then in August 2020, Navalny was poisoned with a nerve agent and almost died on a flight from Siberia. Filmmaker Daniel Roher follows Navalny in real time as he teams with investigative journalists to identify his would-be killers and crack the case wide open. “This thriller [is] a must-see in our political moment” (Vox).

The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with Daniel Roher and subject Maria Pevchikh.
