WE ARE RUSSIA
US PREMIERE Filmmaker Alexandra Dalsbaek follows young activists in Russia in the lead-up to the Presidential election of 2018 as they campaign for Alexei Navalny, the opponent of Vladimir Putin. We follow the activists Milena and Kolya as they take part in street demonstrations in defiance of police crackdowns. The film vividly illustrates the passionate support behind Navalny, who was later poisoned by a nerve agent and eventually imprisoned by the Kremlin. – Thom Powers
