Putin's WitnessesOn January 16, the National Press Club invites you to come see Putin’s Witnesses, a documentary that Variety called “riveting” and “incensed.”

Years after spending considerable time filming Putin at close quarters in his capacity as head of documentaries for Russian national television, Russian filmmaker Vitaly Mansky's Putin’s Witnesses documents the events that followed the unexpected resignation of Russian President Boris Yeltsin in December 1999 and brought Vladimir Putin to power. Says Mansky, “My testimony is very important not only for Russian society -- to cure it from an advanced illness, but also to other countries -- to prevent them from losing their freedom.”

Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring filmmaker Vitaly Mansky.
