The Price Of Truth

How far would you go to defend the idea of an open press?

The extraordinary story of a man who risks everything, even his life, to preserve freedom of speech in Russia.  It is a tale of bravery, defiance, and a simple refusal to give in to Vladimir Putin – whatever the cost.

In December 2021 Dmitry Muratov is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He is the editor of Russia’s only independent newspaper. In February 2022 Russia invades Ukraine.

From that moment on, this documentary is with him – every dangerous step of the way.
