This documentary project was conceived in May 2012, when Putin had just settled into the Kremlin for his third term. The original experimental format of “documentary bulletins,” which were published daily online, allowed for wide-ranging content; the feature film focused solely on the members of various opposition groups. The work’s neutral position remains and viewers have to interpret the objectively presented situations for themselves. The characteristics of this movie include close contact with the protagonists and precise editing. It arches over the lives of men and women for whom protest became their raison d’être and provides a chilling discourse on democratic rights and freedoms, the relationship of state power toward differently thinking groups, and the tendency of the masses to seek out charismatic leaders.
