         again from wikipedia on ETA,

         in the
         basque region & these films look
         interesting & worth seeing. The
         list is below.

         the longer this goes on, I think it would
         be interesting to have a "modern-age"
         list of cases of "terrorism." Its just
         funny to me a little bit because one
         man's terrorist is another man's freedom
         fighter and its all about a point of view.

         Here's a list of films about Chechnya:

         I would think that some subset of these
         might be good to show in Russia, although
         you might get in some trouble showing
         them, I imagine, either here or there.
