THE ASSASSINATION OF ANNA. CRIME WITHOUT PUNISHMENT
(75 min) Russia
[watch trailer]


Director: Anna Artemeva
Producers: Dmitry Muratov, Pavel Kanygin

Description:

On October 7th, 2006, Anna Politkovskaya, a journalist who had been writing on war crime in Chechnya for many years, was murdered in front of her home in Moscow. Vladimir Putin denounced the murder but noted that Politkovskaya had shown a “radical stance” in her critique of the government and that “her murder did more harm to the authorities than her publications.” It’s been 15 years since the murder, and according to the Russian law, the crime has fallen outside of the statute of limitations. But what was the role of the Russian special services in Politkovskaya’s death? And why did the authorities aggressively follow a false trail in the search for the culprit? This is a story about a human tragedy but also about the courage of Novaya Gazeta’s journalists, who still remain faithful to their colleague and friend fifteen years after her death.
