Screening of the film 'Mutiny — The Litvinenko Case'
Written by Антивоенный комитет   
Вторник, 18 Ноябрь 2008
Two years after the death of Alexander Litvinenko, a sensational film by Andrei Nekrasov and Olga Konskaya will be shown for the first time in Russia: 'Mutiny — The Litvinenko Case'. After its premiere at the 60th Cannes Film Festival, the film has been shown on cinema and television screens around the world, and its authors are grateful to the Sakharov Center for an opportunity to show the film in Moscow on the second anniversary of this outstanding person's torturous death.

The screening and discussion of the film will take place at 6 pm on November 20th at the Sakharov Center.
The authors of the film are Andrei Nekrasov and Olga Konskaya.

The film 'Mutiny — The Litvinenko Case'

Excerpts from the Russian press

From a cinematic point of view, 'Mutiny' corresponds with modern documentaries on current political topics, though one can sense that Andrei Nekrasov is by vocation more a lyricist than a writer.

 — Kommersant
'Mutiny' is largely made up of recordings of Nekrasov's lengthy interviews with Litvinenko, exploring what an amazing man was the protagonist.

 — Vedomosti
It is not Andrei Nekrasov's first «tell all» movie, but probably the first of his that was so emotional. No one can doubt that Nekrasov is sincere in his film.

 — Novye Izvestiya
'Mutiny' is a version of recent Russian history and has summoned interest worldwide. None of the comparisons to Michael Moore are tenable: if it had been Moore, then it is much more pathetic, much less fun, and much more philosophical. The movie is a balance between personal and Russian history. Nekrasov attempts to explore how a democratic state turned into one where only the FSB is legitimate. The main principle of Nekrasov's film is not to directly accuse anyone of his friend's death: it was the system itself, and you cannot subpoena it.

 — Gazeta.ru
Andrei Nekrasov's tape is two-hours of hard-hitting, professionally made documentary testimony (which is the subtitle the director gave the film). It traces the history of the Litvinenko case since the 1999 Moscow apartment bombings.

 — BBC Russian Service
'Mutiny' is terribly exciting. A furious film by Andrei Nekrasov and Olga Konskaya that will definitely shake up those who believe that Russia is not playing a primary role in the 21st century. The film topic is current and summons a lively response from the soul.
