“Past Cannot Be Forgotten”

The Arkadia International Bookshop in Helsinki will host a talk with journalist and human rights defender Oksana Chelysheva and Chechen singer Liza Umarova on the situation in Chechnya on Saturday 5 May 2012 at 4 pm. The discussion will be in English and Russian.

The event will include a screening of the film, Aldy: A Past That Cannot Be Forgotten, about a massacre in the Chechen village of Novye Aldy in February 2000. The film was directed by peace activists Yelena Vilenskaya, Nikolai Rybakov, and Yekaterina Sokiryanskaya.

The film is a collection of footage taken by the residents of the village of Novye Aldy a few days after the massacre and of interviews of the survivors taken by Chechen human rights defender Natalia Estemirova in February 2009, just half a year before her murder.
