Endless corridor movie to be shown in Al Jazeera TV
Baku – APA. "Endless corridor" movie will be shown in "Al Jazeera" TV on September 10, at 11:00 in Baku. Screening of the film will be organized by The European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS), as part of the "Justice for Khojaly" campaign initiated by Vice-president of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Leyla Aliyeva.
According to "teas.eu", Endless Corridor, Lithuanian director Aleksandras Brokas' film about the Khojaly Massacre, is attracting more recognition on the international festival circuit. Following its Best of Show Award in the US-based Accolade Global Film Competition, the film has picked up two more prestigious awards.
On 10 July, the Tenerife International Film Festival in Madrid declared Endless Corridor to be the Best Documentary, and Aleksandras Brokas as the Best Director of a Documentary.
Endless Corridor follows two journalists, Lithuanian Richard Lapaitis and Russian Victoria Ivleva, on their return to Azerbaijan 20 years after covering the horrific Khojaly Massacre during the Armenian–Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh. They journey to find the survivors they had first met in the aftermath of the Armenian attack. The accounts of both victims and perpetrators tell a dramatic story of the humanity and inhumanity of events in western Azerbaijan on 26 February 1992.
The film is narrated by Jeremy Irons, the Oscar-winning British actor, and the Emmy-winning American producer Gerald Rafshoon was the Executive Producer.
The film was presented in Istanbul, Ankara, Rome, Vilnius, London, Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Bern and Luxembourg in February as part of the Justice for Khojaly campaign, organized by Leyla Aliyeva, Vice-President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.
With further festivals to come, Endless Corridor is also attracting international attention from leading TV channels.
