JUSTICE FOR SERGEI wins Peace award

14 February 2012

Dutch documentary JUSTICE FOR SERGEI, directed and produced by Martin Maat and Hans Hermans, has won the international Cinema for Peace Justice Award, in Berlin on February 13, 2012.

The Cinema for Peace Award for Justice is handed out by the Cinema for Peace Foundation, which was initiated in 2008 by Jaka Bizilj to further develop the goals and activities of the established Cinema for Peace Initiative throughout the entire year, expanding the role of Cinema for Peace in raising public awareness of social inequality and injustice in the world through the medium of film.

JUSTICE FOR SERGEI is a documentary film on 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 corrupt 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 extraordinary corruption gripping Russia today.
