Presentation of Film on Nagorno-Karabakh to Take Place in London
Great Britain, London / Тrend corr G. Ahmadova / On 27 September in London the University of Modern Arts, Azerbaijani and Armenian journalists from Azerbaijani region of Nagorno-Karabakh will present their jointly-shot film on Nagorno-Karabakh. That is a unique collective work by the journalists from both nations which have been involved in military conflict for over 10 years.
The film is a product of the conflicting sides' initiative entitled 'Dialogue Through Film' and the British NGO of 'Reconciliation Resources', according to the report of the London Institute. The makers of the film will take part in the discussions about their collective work.
The film includes 6 parts - 'A Fairy Tale On Karabakh', 'A Tough Nut', "Swept Away By Life', 'Beetle-eaters', '13 Years Past', and 'Revival'. Three parts were shot by Azerbaijan and the other three by the Armenians.
The presentation ceremony is expected to be attended by members of Great Britain's Azerbaijani and Armenian diasporas.
The conflict between the two countries of South Caucasus began in 1988 due to territorial claims by Armenia against Azerbaijan. Armenia has occupied 20% of the Azerbaijani land including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and its seven surrounding Districts. Since 1992, these territories have been under the occupation of the Armenian Forces. In 1994, Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement at which time the active hostilities ended. The Co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group ( Russia, France and USA) are currently holding peaceful negotiations.
