-The hero of our time.2003,
-Interview w Marina Litvinenko and Ales Goldfarb.2007
The secret war between Russian dissidents and FSB, the successor agency of the KGB, splashed into the worlds front pages last November when Alexander (Sasha) Litvinenko died in London poisoned by radioactive Polonium-210, which was slipped into his tea during a meeting with two visitors from Moscow. In his new documentary, Litvinenkos friend Andrei Nekrasov tells the story of the former FSB officer - from his initial rebellion against corruption in his agency, through his imprisonment and escape from Russia, to his crusade against his former employers to his eventual assassination. In a series of revealing interviews with the main protagonists of the Litvinenko case, including his friends, his alleged killers, his widow and Sasha himself, the film recreates a world of intrigue, high-stake politics, love, loyalty and betrayal, which is more intricate and breathtaking than any fiction could be.
