UK Premiere

In 2014, Ukrainian activist and filmmaker Oleg Sentsov was being tried for allegedly planning a terrorist attack in the contested region of Crimea. Though the testimonies against him were spurious, it was clear that his case would not receive a fair trial. As he became an example of Russian state power, he nonetheless remained openly defiant, drawing public support from directors Wim Wenders and Alexander Sokurov.
