Storyline

A fatal bomb blast in a Moscow apartment building ignites a fury of questions about terrorism, shadow politics, and post-Soviet intrigue in Disbelief , a film as much about the high art of political deception as it is about violence and human tragedy. The bombing on September 9, 1999, of a nine-story working-class apartment complex in Moscow was quickly blamed on Chechen terrorists. But was it their crime? Or did the Russian secret service deflect its own responsibility for the bombing on the Chechens to heighten national fear and hysteria and justify Russia's subsequent military attack on the breakaway republic?

morally courageous
19 November 2006 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

Disbelief is an elegant and artful work of moral courage. The filmmakers at great personal risk pieced together media, public, and clandestine faces of one of the most influential and least known tragedies of our time. Through the voices of two sisters who have restlessly sought out the truth behind the deaths of their family in the 1999 Moscow apartment bombing, and a variety of others attempting to assist them, Disbelief realizes the capacity of documentary film to indict even seemingly untouchable authorities and make them account for their actions. But the film also speaks to the daunting machinery of power, and the disregard for human life in its brokering. This story has not yet ended, and is working itself out in politics that affect all of us still.
