When lawyer Sergei Magnitsky collided with Russia’s state-sponsored corruption, he did something truly extraordinary. He stood his ground.
That choice cost him his life.
A film about Magnitsky, Justice for Sergei, features readings from his prison diary and recollections by family members, colleagues, and friends.
Justice for Sergei won the Cinema for Peace Award for Justice last year in Berlin. It was awarded First Prize in the Human Rights Competition at the ‘Docudays’ Film Festival in Kiev, Ukraine in 2011.
