“My friend Nemtsov” documentary film
Assassinated on February 26th, 2015 near the Kremlin, Boris Nemtsov, former Vice-Prime Minister of Boris Eltsine, was a notorious opponent and dissident to the Russian government led by Vladimir Putin. His assassination triggered thousands of Muscovites to march to protest against murders of opponents in Russia today.
Since past March 2015, Human Rights associations and supporters of Boris Nemtsov in Russia have been feared that the true investigator of the murder will never be found and that a free speech on this subject may never occur.
These concerns seems to be confirmed by the reception given in Russia to the documentary film “My friend Nemtsov” by Zossia Rodkevitch. The film should be part of the Berlin documentary festival in February 2016. However, for its release in its home country it received neither an authorization nor a license.
Presented illegally and only once in Moscow on December 12th, 2015 it will remain confidential due to a game of censorship concerning the slangy language used in the documentary, preventing Russians to watch it.
