The award winning documentary film on Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer who died in November 2009 under excruciating circumstances in a Moscow detention centre, tells a story of an ordinary man who paid the ultimate price while trying to expose the extraordinary corruption gripping Russia today.

His death fuelled international outrage, but inside Russia the corrupt government officials responsible were never brought to justice.

In 2012, the film won the Cinema for Peace Award for Justice 2012 in Berlin. The film was awarded First Prize in the Human Rights Competition at the 'Docudays' Film Festival in Kiev, Ukraine in 2011. Justice for Sergei has been broadcasted in several countries and the 62-minute Director's Cut has been touring major film festivals around the globe.
