BROOKLINE — A documentary about the arrest, trial, and conviction of Mikhail Khodorkovsky will be screened Sunday, November 24, at 10 a.m., at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, Brookline, to raise awareness about the suppression of human rights and the plight of political prisoners in Russia.

The film screening is sponsored by the Makor Center, Amnesty International, and Democracy Is a Right for Everyone, and was organized by Ariella Katz, a Brookline High School senior, who worked last summer in Moscow for the Sakharov Human Rights Center.

Khodorkovsky has been imprisoned for 10 years and has been designated a "prisoner of conscience" by Amnesty International. The film will be introduced by Pavel Khodorkovsky, Mikhail’s son. Speakers of Russian and English will be able to understand and enjoy the film.

Tickets are $10 and will be available at the event or by calling the Makor Center at 617-771-4870. All proceeds go to human rights organizations and to the families of political prisoners in Russia.
