On 11-12 December within the Justice for Khojaly (JFK) campaign Eurochannel, international TV channel will broadcast Endless Corridor, an award-winning documentary that pays tribute to the victims of the Khojaly massacre and discovers the unknown protagonists of one of the darkest tragedies in modern Europe.
As website reads Directed by Aleksandras Brokas and Mindaugas Urbonavicius, and narrated by British cinema legend Jeremy Irons, Endless Corridor follows Lithuanian journalist Richard Lapaitis on a trip back to Azerbaijan 20 years after he covered the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the Khojaly massacre as a war correspondent; a story, he says, that has haunted him since.
“The tragedy of Khojaly tells the story of how cynical and inhuman people decided over the destiny of others,” said director Aleksandras Brokas talking about the film.
Film was premiered in London at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) last year on 1 July, with attendance of Mrs. Leyla Aliyeva, Vice-President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.
Through heart-rending stories, the survivors recall their escape from the Armenian bombardment, losing many loved ones along an “Endless Corridor” as they sought safety.
Endless Corridor has been praised by international critics, and has received, among other accolades, the main prize of the American edition of the Accolade Global Film Competition, also called the Little Oscars.
Within the JFK campaign Endless Corridor was presented in February of this year in Istanbul, Ankara, Rome, Vilnüs, London, Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Bern and Luksembourg. Film originally made in English was translated into Azerbaijani, Turkish, French, Italian, German with subtitles and dubbed into Russian with the initiative by Mrs Leyla Aliyeva.
The film was broadcast in Kanal 24”, “CNN Türk” of Turkey, Albanian National TV and Israeli “Channel 1”.
Eurochannel website has published an interview with Aleksandras Brokas, Director of the film.
