Who Killed Natasha? American Movie Premiere with Filmmaker at the IFC Center Followed by Panel Discussion

In July 2009, hours after she was abducted from her home, her body was discovered by the side of the road. The filmmaker travels to Chechnya, Russia and England investigating the pattern of silencing dissident voices that speak out against the human rights violations in Chechnya and Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov.
