Michael Andersen, a Danish Journalist and specialist on Central Asia and the former Soviet Union, has released a trailer of a new documentary on Uzbekistan. Andersen has collaborated with IREX Europe since 2006 and is a regular adviser and trainer in journalism and investigative reporting for IREX Europe in those regions. He made a press release Monday 16 July.
This is a unique project in that it is not ‘just’ about making a film. It’s also about getting the film to the people it matters most to.
Our investigation began days after the massacre as demonstrators from Andijan fled the country. The result is a 80-minute documentary film – ‘Massacre in Uzbekistan’. [...]
GIVING THE FILM AWAY - FOR FREE – IN UZBEK AND RUSSIAN
[...] We have spent seven years, and a lot of our own money, making the English version of this film. That is why we are now asking for HELP: If people, NGOs and international organizations think it is important that the Uzbeks themselves know about the Massacre in Andijan, the oppression of the Karimov regime and the West’s collusion with him – we are asking them to donate money to support the TRANSLATION PROJECT.
The trailers and the information on how to do this are available in English, Russian and Uzbek on www.massacre-in-uzbekistan.com.
