THE NOTORIOUS MR. BOUT

Viktor Bout weaves twenty years of home movies with extensive first person narrative and high profile interviews to form a startling account of how this Russian entrepreneur became one of the world’s most infamous felons

Until three days prior to his 2008 arrest on charges of conspiring to kill Americans Bout kept the camera running, documenting a life spent in the grey areas of international law.

Dubbed the “Merchant of Death” and portrayed by Nicholas Cage in Hollywood’s Lord of War Viktor Bout can justifiably be called the world’s most famous arms dealer.

With unprecedented access to Bout’s home movies and DEA surveillance material gathered during the sting operation to bring him down THE NOTORIOUS MR. BOUT is a portrait of a life much mythologised but little understood.

Available digitally on 7th October 2014 and on DVD 13th October 2014.
