Letter to Anna (Documentary Movie)

Submitted by on Wednesday, 25 July 2012.    2,510 views One Comment

“LETTER TO ANNA”: a personal quest, but also a political. It’s the story of journalist Anna Politkovskaya’s death. A film by Eric Bergkraut, 83 minutes.

On October 7, 2006, Vladimir Putin’s 54th birthday, the Ukranian journalist Anna Politkovskaya is shot in the lift of her apartment in Moscow, Russia. Anna’s death is a personal tragedy: she has just learnt that she is to become a grandmother. But the murder is also a political act as Politkovskaya was the Russian President Putin’s fiercest critic. Why was she shot in cold blood, this elegant woman who was always on the side of the weak and those who had no rights? Was it because of the stance she took against the bloody Russian occupation in Chechnya where is a war that is virtually ignored in the world at large and yet became a turning point in Anna’s life?
