Intrigued by the scandals behind the most-expensive-Olympics-ever?  Perturbed that much of that £37bn sum seems to have gone astray, in Business Putin-style?   Or just interested to learn about the transformation of sleepy Sochi to centre of the (media) universe?

 

DOCHOUSE PRESENTS: Putin’s Olympic Dream, following the epic, vainglorious project of preparing Sochi for this year’s Winter Olympics, talking to those involved at all levels, from entrepreneurs and oligarchs to immigrants, athletes and activists.  Filmmaker Hans Pool masterfully captures it all as financial, political and ecological limits are breached, with corruption the common denominator.
