Enthralling and intimate, Canadian filmmaker Daniel Roher’s Oscar-winning documentary feature NAVALNY unfolds with the pace of a thriller as it follows Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny in his quest to identify the men who poisoned him in August 2020.
Shot in Germany as the story unfolded and offering extraordinary access to the investigation, NAVALNY is a fly-on-the-wall documentary that is also a study of Navalny the man—a portrait of a leader intent on reform who will not be cowed by anything, including his own poisoning.
"This is fantastic. Essential, urgent, and it couldn't be more relevant." (FilmWeek)
"Part political portrait, part espionage thriller - containing perhaps the most jaw-dropping phone call in the history of cinema." (Filmspotting)
"A must-see in our political moment." (VOX)
"Roher has assembled a tense and absorbing look at Navalny and his inner circle." (New York Times)
"It is more chilling and absorbing than any spy fiction, because it’s all real, and ominous, too." (Globe and Mail)
