“Navalny,” A Film About a Dissident Fighting the Kremlin, Wins Oscar for Best Documentary

From an AP story by Mark Kennedy headlined “‘Navalny,’ about dissident fighting Kremlin, wins doc Oscar”:

“Navalny,” a look at a Russian opposition leader following an attempt on his life, has won the Oscar for best documentary feature.

Director Daniel Roher’s portrait of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has shadowy operatives, truth-seeking journalists, conspiracy theories and Soviet-era poisons. It is a film with obvious political poignance following the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
