The Russian city of Sochi on “Russia’s Riviera” is a traditional summer resort for Russia’s rich and beautiful. It was also chosen to host the 2014 Winter Olympics by the International Olympics Committee. It was a bizarre choice. When the IOC made its decision, there was not one single venue fit for Olympic purposes of any kind in Sochi. Putin’s Games exposes the questionable nature of the entire Sochi nomination, while following the construction of a faux “winter” in a sub-tropical environment. In the light of the Winter Olympics, the depths of controversy only become greater.

The film will be followed by a debate with:
Sasha Klein, producer of the film
Sasha Koulaeva, head of East Europe and Central Asia, FIDH - International Federation for Human Rights
Nikolai Rybakov, director of the Environmental Rights Center Bellona
Simon Pánek, director People in Need
