Join the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy for a screening of the Oscar-winning documentary film NAVALNY, followed by a Q&A with producer Shane Boris and Bellingcat’s Christo Grozev (featured in the film), moderated by Robb Moss, Harvard Professor of Art, Film, and Visual Studies
When Alexei Navalny, leader of the political opposition movement against Vladimir Putin in Russia, was poisoned in August 2020, the journalism outlet Bellingcat, along with investigative journalists from Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation, jumped into action to figure out what had happened and who was responsible. Documentary filmmaker Daniel Rohr was already planning a film about Bellingcat and its reporting tactics – a film that quickly turned into one about the extraordinary personal, political, and international events unfolding as Navalny was evacuated to Germany, slowly recovered, and vowed to uncover the truth and return home to Russia.
