Power in the Information Field of Natural and Anthropogenic Catastrophes (On the Basis of Documentaries)

The narratives of Russian documentary films about natural and anthropogenic catastrophes of last two decades in history of the Russian Federation are explored on the basis of the N.Luhmann’s concept of the power as a communicative system. As a result communicative «the accident code» is reconstructed. It is proved, that a disaster code and a power code in communicative systems are linked by logic of denial: absence of the power generates the disaster.
