Swiss director Eric Bergkraut on closing night of Human Rights Watch Film Festival

Truth-telling can be dangerous business. All around the world, reporters put themselves at risk to expose injustices and atrocities. The organization to support them, The Committee to Protect Journalists, co-sponsored Thursday night's screening of Eric Bergkraut's "Letter to Anna," about the 2006 assassination of Russian journalist, Anna Politkovskaya.

This sold-out film at the Walter Reade could be a companion to "Poisoned by Polonium: The Litvinenko File," released earlier this year. Andrei Nekrasov, the director of "Poisoned," appears in "Letter" to express his infatuation and admiration for the fearless, determined human rights activist known for her opposition to the Chechen conflict.
