Justice for Sergei is an award-winning documentary about Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer who died in November 2009 at the age of 37 under excruciating circumstances in a Moscow detention centre, still awaiting trial. His death fuelled international outrage, but inside Russia the government officials responsible were never brought to justice. Justice for Sergei tells the story of an ordinary man who paid the ultimate price while trying to expose the corruption gripping Russia today. It won the Cinema for Peace Award for Justice 2012 in Berlin.
