The Making of an Empire: Khozh Akhmed Noukhaev (Documentary Movie)
Khozh Akhmed Noukhaev is a guerilla leader of the Chechen independence movement. Acclaimed film director Jos de Putter got the illustrious guerilla leader to cooperate for this stirring documentary, which tells his side of the story of Chechnya and its struggle for independence. We follow the hero of many as he travels to remote Chechen villages where he solves local problems and disputes. We also follow him on his trips abroad to negotiate the control of the trans-Caucasian oil pipeline so vital to the Chechen economy. Khozh Akhmed Noukhaev is one of Chechnya’s most charismatic leaders and freedom fighters. From the Russian point of view, however, Noukhaev is a terrorist who is wanted dead or alive. Here we learn his personal story, and through him we also learn about the mystical, proud, and violent history of the Chechen people. We may call him like Robin Hood of Chechen nation.
