PRISONER OF THE CAUCASUS

Part of Double Bill: Prisoner of the Caucasus + Shto Novovo: An Elegy For The Union
Dir: Yuri Khashchavatski
Germany / Poland / 2002 / 52mins

A searing anti-war essay on the Russian-Chechen war - one of the most brutal yet under-reported of current conflicts. A collection of graphic footage from freelance camera people is interwoven with Tolstoy's writings, penned during his own stint in the Russian army, fighting Chechnya 150 years ago. Tolstoy asks 'why they are fighting'. The answer seems no clearer now than it was then. All that's changed, it seems, is the level of brutality.
