Boris Nemtsov – ‘as he really was’


MY FRIEND BORIS NEMTSOV Trailer from Antipode Sales on Vimeo.

The film Nemtsov chronicles a remarkable political life, according to the Institute of Modern Russia:

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. 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.

According to the film’s writer and director, Vladimir Kara-Murza (right), his goal was “to show Boris Nemtsov as he really was—without the lies, the slander, and the propaganda.”
