German documentary filmmaker Hubert Seipel was recently granted unprecedented access to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for his film "I, Putin." The powerful Russian politician has never been the subject of such an intimate portrayal on film, and certainly not from the perspective of a Western journalist who can edit the footage as he sees fit. Indeed, Putin normally doesn't let journalists get too close to him.
