“Unchechen” is about the attempted genocide of gay men in Chechnya. The film has been created by digitalSTAGE and the award-winning Inkbrew Productions. It tells the harrowing story of the entrapment and interrogation of just one of the gay men who form the #Chechen100, based on accounts provided by some of the men who have so far escaped.
