New York, NY - October 23, 2012 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the DVD release of Khodorkovsky, a political documentary by Cyril Tuschi that examines the arrest and subsequent conviction of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the wealthiest man in Russia who became a symbol for political freedom.

In October 2003, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, former head of the Russian oil company Yukos, was arrested on charges of tax evasion and fraud. This documentary uncovers the story behind Khodorkovsky's arrest and subsequent conviction - the story of a man who has transformed from the wealthiest man in Russia into a martyr for the cause of political freedom and rule of law.
Tracking his growth from his days at university to his founding of Bank Menatep and eventual acquisition of Yukos, filmmaker Cyril Tuschi paints a portrait of Khodorkovsky as an enigmatic, larger-than-life character. With footage from a meeting between Khodorkovsky and then-Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as newsreel interviews with Putin himself, Tuschi sets the stage for a gripping, suspense-laden showdown between Khodorkovsky and the Russian powers that be.

A brilliantly constructed piece of investigative filmmaking, Khodorkovsky
sweeps the viewer along as Tuschi embarks on a personal journey to track his man down.
