Storyline

On September 1, 2004, a group of heavily armed rebel extremists stormed into School No. 1 in Beslan, Russia. For three days, more than a thousand children and adults were held hostage in a sweltering gymnasium, denied food and water, and forced to keep their hands over their heads. The harrowing siege ended on September 3 with a series of explosions and a hail of gunfire that killed some 350 people - half of them children. In this film, the youngest survivors of Beslan tell their story. Written by Anonymous

Want it on DVD
29 March 2009 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Children of Beslan was a very moving documentary for me. The documentary (watched it on BBC) is still fresh in my mind, and the way the children gave the details of the event like adults. I very rarely find a documentary that moving, that real, and to learn the grieves and sufferings of the children through the documentary was an experience not to be forgotten.

It is all a tough thing to watch.

I have been looking forward to owning a copy of this for years now. It seems it is not released yet, does anybody know how I can get a copy of this? Has there been no commercial value to this documentary that it hasn't been released? I have tried to reach HBO a couple of times, but I wasn't able to get any response out from them.

I am not sure if this is ever going to be be available on DVD, but if anybody could give me any kind of guidance on how to get a copy, I will be very thankful.
