KHOJALY MEMORIAL EVENING PRAGUE - Endless Corridor
Mon 27 February 2017, 20:30 – 23:00 CET
The European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS), under the auspices of the international Justice for Khojaly campaign, is pleased to invite you to attend a free screening of the acclaimed documentary film Endless Corridor in remembrance of the 613 Azerbaijani civilians who tragically lost their lives on 26 February 1992 in the Azerbaijani town of Khojaly.
The film is narrated by Jeremy Irons, and follows Lithuanian journalist Ricardas Lapaitis on a trip back to Azerbaijan 20 years after he covered the Armenian–Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh and Khojaly Massacre as a war correspondent.
The documentary sees him reunite with survivors of the tragedy, who recall their heart-rending stories as they sought to escape Armenian bombardment, losing many loved ones along an Endless Corridor seeking safety.
It also hears from the perpetrators of the massacre, Armenian commanders, who examine their war strategies and reasoning. Despite several resolutions by the United Nations and other international bodies calling for its unconditional withdrawal, Armenia continues to occupy Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding districts to this day.
'Endless Corridor' received praise from international critics after being screened internationally throughout 2015. After receiving the Best of Show Award from the prestigious Accolade Global Film Competition in the US, it was awarded the Best Documentary and Best Director for a Documentary Prizes at the Tenerife International Film Festival in Madrid; and the Best Documentary Editing Prize at the Milano International Filmmakers Festival. It has also been screened on the pan-European Eurochannel, Israeli Channel 1, CNN Turk, Turkish TV 24, London Live and Al-Jazeera channels.
