A Bitter Taste of Freedom

Poster for A Bitter Taste of Freedom

Documentary tribute to Anna Politkovskaya, the Russian journalist assassinated in 2006 after her distrubing reports from Chechnya. More

"The crusading journalist Politkovskaya, sometimes described as 'the heart and conscience of Russia', was murdered in Moscow in 2006 and her alleged killers have only recently been arrested. In this new documentary by one of Russia's leading documentary directors, the focus is on the character of Politkovskaya, enlivened by striking footage of the journalist herself, her views, her personal life, and the life of her family and relations. She is revealed as someone committed to journalism as a vocation, whose interest in the problems of refugees led her to tell 'people's stories', and ultimately to her reports from Chechnya."
