Real Vision Essential ·
Featuring Bill Browder

The inspiring, emotional and tragic story of Bill Browder’s Hermitage Capital in Russia is perhaps the most powerful piece of film we’ve ever featured on Real Vision. After his world beating Hermitage fund was devastated by the Russian default, Bill Browder took on the oligarchs and won, in an epic tale straight from the pages of a spy novel. But as the Russian government turned on him, the story turned from corruption to tragedy. Filmed on February 1, 2017 in London.
