Nemtsov: Film Screening and Discussion

Monday, January 29, 2018 at 7:00pm

Willard Straight Hall, Cornell Cinema
Central Campus

On January 29, 2018, the Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies will host a screening of Nemtsov, a documentary film about the late leader of the Russian opposition directed by his friend and colleague Vladimir Kara-Murza. The screening will be in the Cornell Cinema in Willard Straight Hall at 7:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public.

Nemtsov chronicles a remarkable political life. It 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 a portrait. It is not about death. It is about the life of a man who could have been president of Russia.

The film is in Russian, with English subtitles. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Vladimir Kara-Murza and a reception in the lobby.

Co-sponsored by the Cornell Institute for European Studies.
