Navalny + Q&A with editor Maya Daisy Hawke
Institute of Contemporary Arts
July 2022
Navalny, dir. Daniel Roher, USA 2022, 99 min., English and Russian with English subtitles


In August 2020, a plane travelling from Siberia to Moscow made an emergency landing. One of its passengers, Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, was deathly ill. Taken to a local Siberian hospital and eventually evacuated to Berlin, doctors confirmed that he had been poisoned with Novichok, a nerve agent implicated in attacks on other opponents of the Russian government. President Vladimir Putin immediately cast doubt on the findings and denied any involvement.

While recovering, Navalny and his team — already with a large social media following in tow — partnered with the data investigative journalism unit Bellingcat as well as other international news organizations to investigate his attempted assassination and find proof of the Kremlin’s involvement.
 
Daniel Roher’s film follows the Russian opponent in his attempts to uncover the ones responsible for his poisoning.

This screening is followed by a Q&A with the film’s co-editor Maya Daisy Hawke, hosted by Shanida Scotland, Head of Film at the BFI Doc Society.
