The Moscow Football Disaster (1982, Luzhniki, Moscow)

Back in the winter of 1982, one of the biggest disasters in football history took place at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow
with an estimated 300 people losing their lives. Most people have never heard of this tragic event, thanks largely to the
Soviet authorities who did everything in their power to hush up this disaster.

The official death toll to this day is 66, although many claim it to be as high as 340.
Its circumstances are similar to that of Ibrox disaster and the Hillsborough Disaster.

Film-makers Thomas Blom and Jan Pieter Tuinstra, together with researcher Irina Anatsheva, have carefully reconstructed
events during that dreadful evening in Moscow, featuring the exclusive stories of the surviving relatives and
eye witnesses and following them during the first official memorial held in 2007.
