People all around the world are always curious about what Vladimir Putin is like behind his macho-man exterior. Oscar winner Oliver Stone released his 4-episode docu-series on the Russian president this week. Conducted between 2015 and 2017, the film gave a closer look at one of the most powerful men in the world and revealed some rarely known details, such as Putin’s one-time interest in joining NATO. The first two episodes were made available to news media before airing and drew criticism. Some said Stone never brought up Russia’s involvement in Syria and other sensitive issues. Meanwhile, the FBI investigation on whether Russia intervened in the 2016 US election is underway.
Can the documentary really ask the tough questions the American public wants? Here to shed light on the issue is our panel: Professor Teng Jimeng, a freelance movie critic and cultural commentator; Christopher Chambers, professor of journalism at Georgetown University; Dmitry Babich, a political analyst from Sputnik International News Agency.
