PUTIN'S WITNESSES

Neujahrsabend 1999, Russland steht vor einem historischen Umbruch. Der geschwächte Präsident Boris Jelzin erklärt überraschend seinen Rücktritt und ernennt eine noch unbekannte Persönlichkeit zu seinem Nachfolger - Wladimir Putin. Mansky’s Film ist ein persönliches Zeugnis, das einen privilegierten Blick hinter die Kulissen der Machtübernahme Putins ermöglicht.
