Defence Counsel Sedov

Защитник Седов

Directed by Yevgeni Tsymbal
Soviet Union, 1988
Drama, Short


Sedov is the only lawyer willing to take on the defence of four farmers accused of sabotaging. His dogged persistence against the state’s legal and political bureaucracy gets the men off, but results in his own canonisation as a Stalinist zealot – and in the execution of dozens of other men.
