Musa: A Victim of Russian Brutality (Documentary Movie)
In her latest project, “0.8 Square Metres“, Estonian director Kristina Norman worked with the physical and emotional dimension of the concept of imprisonment.
She draws a parallel between the contemporary experiences of political imprisonment and the conditions in the concentration camp set up on Suomenlinna island in Helsinki in the aftermath of the Finnish Civil War (1918-1919). As a victim of the Russian brutality in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, Musa shared his experience. We present you a part of this project where Musa speaks.
Musa is in construction business. He has a wife and two kids. According to him, he has never belonged to any military and political organization. Neverthless, he was abducted from his parents’ home in Grozny by the Russian soldiers and tortured during 11 months in prison. Musa belives that if he would return to Chechnya, he might be facing an already familiar scenario of confinement and torture, or even a murder.
