Grozny Blues

by Nicola Bellucci
Switzerland | 2015 | 100'


A wild plunge into the Chechen world, between a local Islamist president, supported by Russia, and the resistance of a group of women filmmakers and photographers committed to defending human rights. Impressive archive material, striking witness accounts, and the blues as an expression of regret and hope. A powerful journey into the recent history, the present and the future of the Caucasus.
