Challenging reality. A retrospective of Vitaly Mansky

Putin's Witnesses Vitaly Mansky

Svideteli Putina

Mansky’s gripping documentary chronicles the early stages of Russian president Vladimir Putin’s tyrannical rule. The film is assembled entirely from old footage shot first-hand by the filmmaker when he worked as head of documentary for the state television in the 90's. The alarming tone, set to a shivering musical score, captures Putin’s controversial rise to power and his totalitarian tendencies in remarkable detail, almost hinting at things yet to come.
