Description

You're invited to the film screening of 'Who killed Natacha?'

Natalia Estemirova was a leading human rights defender working since 2000 for the Memorial Human Rights Centre. Natalia was killed nine years ago on 15 July.

She gathered eyewitness accounts of crimes against humanity committed in the second Chechen conflict and investigated torture, enforced disappearances and extrajudicial executions.

Shortly after her death, the Memorial Human Rights Centre in the Chechen capital Grozny suspended its work.

No justice has been served yet in Natalia Estemirova's case and her murder remains unsolved nine years after she was killed.

The film's running time is 1 hour 10 mins. Come along to ask questions about Amnesty's Brave campaign.

Seats are free, but subject to availability so book now to avoid disappointment.

Film description- Who Killed Natacha?

Directed by Mylène Sauloy

Grozny, July 15, 2009: A woman is abducted outside her home, and a few hours later, her lifeless body is found by a road. Her name was Natasha Estemirova, a journalist and advocate of human rights. She was denouncing the crimes and tortures committed by Chechnya's president, Ramzan Kadyrov, whom she was hoping to drag in front of Strasburg's International Tribunal.

Her friend and predecessor was Ana Politkovskaya, the Russian journalist killed three years earlier. Both women were shot and killed as well as perpetually threatened by Kadyrov, whose position was decided by Putin.

The documentary follows the investigation in Chechnya, Russia, and England of the system set up by Putin to suppress any dissident voices; a system that has already cost the lives of twenty-five journalists and other opponents. Also, the film follows the investigation into the death of Natasha Estemirova, revealing the courage and the life of this exceptional woman.
