“.. this journalist was a kind of thin red line running through the scattered fragments of a historical scenario buried in a pervasive fog.
The recurrent phrase was “Anna Politkovskaya was there…”– Stefano Massini, playwright of Intractable Woman on Anna Politkovskaya
Intractable Woman tells the story of Anna Politkovskaya, the only Russian journalist to cover the Second Chechen War, and a person killed for breaking the silence of censorship. Intractable Woman is about a fearless woman who fights for freedom from censorship, human rights and freedom of the press. In 2017, over a decade after her death, her story continues to be urgently relevant. She continues to exist as a thin red line running through the ” scattered fragments of a historical scenario buried in a pervasive fog.”
Anna Politkovskaya was there.
