Citizens Against Terror
Written by Administrator   
Воскресенье, 25 Март 2007
On March 27th & 28th the Voronezh House of Actors will host public meetings within the framework of ‘Citizens Against Terror’.

March 27th:

11:00 am – Noon. Press conference and presentation of the report “Nord-Ost — the unfinished investigation”.

5:00 pm. Showing of Dan Reed’s film, “Terror in Moscow”.

March 28:

4 pm. A report on the investigation of the Beslan terrorist attack and a showing of Andrei Nekrasov’s film, “Disbelief”.

“Terror in Moscow” was previously scheduled to be shown at the Moscow cinema center on Red Presnya on October 2nd, 2003, within the framework of the ‘Chechnya

Festival’ (http://odgroup.narod.ru/festival.htm) At the last moment, however, the director of the cinema center terminated the contract with the festival organizers, the largest human rights organizations in Russia, explaining that “Terror in Moscow” and other documentary films from the West that were included in the program had an anti-Russian slant.

During the ‘Chechnya Festival’, the film was instead shown at the Andrei Sakharov Museum and Community Center. On October 4th, 2003, there was a special session for former hostages and relatives of slain hostages.

“Terror in Moscow”, which was first shown in Britain, does not attempt to explain the Chechnya conflict. The film is mainly composed of interviews with surviving witnesses, recordings of telephone conversations, films of the assault of the building and its aftermath that had never previously been shown, and, most importantly, a unique video of the events made by one of the militants. There are no interviews with Chechen or Russian officials. As a result, we are confronted by a vivid picture of the tragedy through the eyes of its victims, a human point of view that is universal and touching, while at the same time typically Russian.
“Disbelief” is a chronicle of the tragedy of one family, victims of power politics in the age of global terrorism. “Disbelief”, however, is not so much about politics as it is a film about violence and human tragedy. The terrible bombing of a Moscow apartment building led to an endless stream of questions and theories, from the terror act to clandestine intrigues and a Kremlin power-struggle.

Tatiana Morozova, from Milwaukee (USA), learns that her mother has been killed in the bombing of her home in Moscow. At first she believed the official theory that the bombing was the work of Chechen terrorists. A book by an American journalist, however, claims that the bombing was organized by the FSB in order to help Putin win upcoming elections.

Torn by grief and doubt, Tatiana and her sister Alyona start their own investigation, and the film director follows them to Moscow, Denver, Washington, London, the Urals, and back again to Milwaukee.

In November 2004, “Disbelief” won a Special Jury Prize at the Amnesty International documentary film festival in Copenhagen.

In 2005, “Disbelief” was awarded ‘Best Documentary’ at the international film festival in Karachi for “a skillfully narrated story, poetic filming and editing, a thrilling soundtrack, for its careful facts, excellent archival material, subtlety, and the humanity with which the vast material presents the political and universal values of our fragmented world where the notion of ‘terrorism’ has become a convenient instrument to suppress dissent, and for the courage of the film’s authors to protest against this deep-rooted prejudice” (from the festival’s press release).
