Oscar winning writer/director Alex Gibney’s revelatory CITIZEN K is an intimate yet sweeping look at post-Soviet Russia from the perspective of the enigmatic Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a former oligarch turned political dissident.   Benefitting from the chaos that ensued after the dissolution of the U.S.S.R., Khodorkovsky was able to amass a fortune in financing and oil production and became the richest man in Russia.   But when he accused the new Putin regime of corruption, Khodorkovsky was arrested, his assets were seized and following a series of show trials, he was sentenced to more than ten-years in prison.   Expertly researched and photographed, this is a bracing and revelatory exposé of contemporary Russia.

“The Oscar-winning documentarian is back, firing on all cylinders and reconnecting with his political muse.   The result is easily his best documentary in years.”
– Ed Gibbs, Little White Lies

“Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s wild ride from oligarch to prisoner to anti-Putin dissident is rich material for Alex Gibney’s latest deep-dive documentary.” – Guy Lodge, Variety

“What a strange story – and it’s not over yet.” – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

Language: Russian, English (English subtitles)

Length: 2 hr.5 min.
