Andrei Nekrasov Film - The Magnitsky Act - Behind the scenes

This is truely a story of our times. If your story fits an agenda it can have miraculous results - the truth is more modest but will it expose Browder in the end.

Nekrasov's film "Magnitsky Act – Behind the Scenes" produced in Norway by Piraya Film, supported by a number of European film funds and the public Franco-German TV network Arte TV and completed in 2016, caused a major controversy. 

The film alleges that western politicians and media were misled by [Bill Browder], a U.S. born investor and campaigner, into believing that the Russian tax consultant Sergei Magnitsky had been persecuted and killed for exposing corruption.[4] 

Bill Browder’s version of Magnitsky’s life and death has been widely accepted across the world, and became the basis for legislations and sanctions in  a number of countries, first of all the U.S.[5] 

The premiere of Nekrasov’s film at the European Parliament, scheduled for April 26 2016, was stopped at the last moment.[6]

A TV broadcast in Germany and France and film’s public screenings were cancelled due to Browder’s legal challenges.[4]

According to Browder and some media the film was promoted by a group of Russian patriots which included Natalia Veselnitskaya.[7] 

Over Browder's objections, the Newseum in Washington held a screening in June 2016 hosted by American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh.[5] 

Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA)'s office actively promoted the screening, sending out invitations from the office of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia and Emerging Threats, which Rohrabacher chairs.[7]
