On September 29, Latvian Transatlantic Organisation and Centre for East European 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.

Film presentation supported by Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.

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 Mr Vladimir Kara-Murza.

Moderator: Mr Andis Kudors, Director at Centre for East European Studies

Screening will take place on September 29, 11:30 in cinema K.Suns, Elizabetes street 83/85. Admission free, but we kindly request to register for the event so we can guarantee the seat.


Event supported by: Konrad Adenauer Stiftung
