Nautilus filmavond : Russia vs Lawyers

vrijdag 24 mei 2024 , 20:00 - 23:00 uur

FILMAVOND - May 24, Russia vs Lawyers, Q&A with film-maker Masha Novikova.

After Russia started the war against Ukraine, the state’s repressive machine started spinning with even greater velocity than before. The law system turned into a mechanism of abuse and brutality. Human rights lawyers have become the last frontier between state violence and society.
Film-maker Masha Novikova followed a network of human rights lawyers for more than three years. The film documents their everyday struggle for justice in the increasingly hopeless conditions of a suffocating dictatorship.
As we witness the mounting risks faced by many lawyers, leading them to flee the country to protect themselves and their families, protagonist Mikhail Benyash stands firm. His unwavering belief in the significance of every voice and every small act of defiance against the dictatorship remains unshaken. Even in the face of personal sacrifice.

Language: Russian. Subtitles: English.
