Boris Nemtsov: “The Man Who Was Too Free” – Film Screening and Discussion

The story of the life of Boris Nemtsov is the history of Russia over the last 25 years. The story begins in the 1990s, when Nemtsov was viewed as Russia’s future president, and ends with his murder on a bridge under Kremlin walls in February 2015. Covering the entire period from Nemtsov’s rise to prominence through the tragic moment of his death, the documentary “The Man Who Was Too Free” offers a detailed look not just into Nemtsov’s life but the dramatic events that shaped it.

A discussion with Mikhail Fishman, Russian journalist and the film’s producer and screenwriter, will follow.

Film: 126 minutes, in Russian with English subtitles.
