First Run/Icarus Films' New Releases at the Chicago International Documentary Festival
We are proud to have four acclaimed new documentaries at the 2005 Chicago International Documentary Festival (April 1 - 10).

BRIDE KIDNAPPING IN KYRGYZSTAN - the first film about the Kyrgyz tradition of bride kidnapping - takes viewers inside families, to meet kidnapped brides who have escaped as well as those who are making homes with their new husbands. THE 3 ROOMS OF MELANCHOLIA is a multiple award winning, highly praised revelation of how the Chechen War has psychologically affected children in Russia and in Chechnya. THE PASSION OF MAR√ćA ELENA is, "[A] bracing look at violence and justice." (New York Times). And, THE MEN WHO WOULD CONQUER CHINA is a dramatic and humorous narrative that asks and answers; How does one buy companies owned by the state of China, support that country's transition to capitalism, and make a fortune at the same time?
