Join us for a screening of the documentary NAVALNY about imprisoned Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, whose portrait is included in the exhibition Peter Sacks: Resistance.


Navalny’s years-long campaign against corruption among Russia’s elites and his calls for democratic reforms enrage President Vladimir Putin. In August 2020, Navalny was secretly poisoned with a military-grade chemical nerve agent in an elaborate attempt on his life. Despite denials from the Russian government, the poison was later linked to the Kremlin through investigations by international news organizations, including Bellingcat and CNN. The film, produced by CNN and HBO Max, documents these shocking events, including Navalny's brave return to Russia, where he is currently imprisoned.


NAVALNY will be introduced by the film’s Social Impact Executive Producer, Geralyn White Dreyfous. A Q&A session will follow the screening.


Space is limited; registration is required.
