Quintus Studios' "Vladimir Putin: Power At Any Cost" documentary (1x60’) has been acquired by Warner Brothers Discovery Italy and Poland’s Polsat. The film produced by the in-house production team at German broadcaster Welt24, documents how the former KGB spy became the most influential man on earth.

"Vladimir Putin: Power At Any Cost" explores how Putin built an effective propaganda machine and his brand of autocratic power politics. The film also studies his pursuit and construction of the controversial Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline project with Germany.

"It is great to see ‘Vladimir Putin: Power At Any Cost’ being picked up in Italy and Poland. In these challenging times, it’s important to understand the background of the conflict and the background to international economic and social relationships. Welt did an excellent job in creating a contemporary portrait of Vladimir Putin’s rise to power" said Anouk van Dijk, Head of Sales & Co-Productions at Quintus Studios.
