The Dmitriev Affair + Talk: Putin, an echo of Stalin?

Screening of the movie "The Dmitriev Affair" and talk about Putins regime, at the HUMAN International Documentary Film Festival in Oslo.

The Russian historian Yuri Dmitriev has been searching for the mass graves of the victims of Stalin’s terror since the 1990s. Until he was arrested, he identified the names of thousands of innocent people and provided answers to the victims’ families.

Dmitriev also identified the names of the executioners, those whom the current Putin regime hails as heroes. The worst methods of past repression are now being used in Russia – but are Dmitriev’s efforts in vain? What can Dmitriev’s case teach us about Russian society?

– Jessica Gorter, film director of «The Dmitriev Affair»
– A member of Yuri Dmitriev’s family
– Moderator: Hanne Østli Jakobsen (Morgenbladet)

The screening and talks are supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
