Since the 2016 presidential election, we’ve seen the rise of a new McCarthyism, fueled by former and current US government officials, and boosted by media outlets (Russia rigged the 2016 election! Russia hacked the power grid! Russia created Black Lives Matter and the NoDAPL protests!) However, the groundwork for this campaign was laid in 2012, by an oft-referenced but little understood bill called the Magnitsky Act. The true story of the Magnitsky Act is one of the financial crimes, international power politics, and score-settling cloaked in concern for human rights. Russian director and filmmaker Andrei Nekrasov is here to tell us this story. You can watch his film Behind the Magnitsky Act here: http://magnitskyact.com
