World Premiere: The Price Of Truth, Director’s Cut
The extraordinary story of a man who risks everything to preserve freedom of speech in Russia. In December 2021, Dmitry Muratov is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He is the editor-in-chief of Russia’s only independent newspaper, Novaya Gazeta. Six of his journalists have been murdered after their reports displeased the state. In February 2022, Russia invades Ukraine. In early March, Muratov secretly negotiates free passage for forty journalists with the Latvian government. Then he returns to Moscow to look after his paper and its remaining staff. To this day, he refuses to leave Moscow, whatever the pressure on him and his team. “Putin stands for death,” Muratov says. “I stand for life.”
With a pre-recorded message to the festival from Muratov, and audience talkback with director Patrick Forbes, moderated by David Herszenhorn of The Washington Post.
