Putin's Witnesses

Vitaly Mansky was head of the documentary department for Russia’s state TV network when the nation was transitioning from the Yeltsin government to the authoritarian one that now exists under Vladimir Putin. Here, the exiled director reassembles his footage from those days to riveting, frightening effect. "An extraordinarily revealing portrait of Vladimir Putin’s ascension to power… delivers what seems almost impossibly close access to Putin, his colleagues and outgoing president Boris Yeltsin."—Screen
