LETTER TO ANNA – THE STORY OF JOURNALIST POLITKOVSKAYA'S DEATH

by Eric Bergkraut

synopsis

Anna Politkovskaja was shot in the lift of her Moscow apartment block on 7th October 2006. Her untimely death was not only a personal tragedy, but also a political act. How did it get to this: that this elegant woman, who had always stood up for the weak and for those without a voice, would be shot in cold blood? Bergkrauts incisive documentary is both a personal investigation and a political film.
