Documentary

Viktor Bout was a Russian entrepreneur, a war profiteer, an aviation magnate, an arms smuggler and, strangest of all, an amateur filmmaker. 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 Nicolas Cage in 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, this documentary is a portrait of a life much mythologized but little understood.

Director: Tony Gerber and Maxim Pozdorovkin
Cast: Alla Bout and Sergei Bout
