Elmar Imanov’s film “The End of the Season” in the competition of the Rotterdam Film Festival
A new full-length feature film by Azerbaijani director Elmar Imanov (“Undertaker`s Swing“, “Apart”) will be shown for the first time at the Rotterdam Film Festival in late January. The low-key drama tells about twenty-four hours from the life of a simple Bakuvian family, which lives in one of the many new buildings of big city. A long-planned trip to the sea becomes a metaphor in the film, creating intrigue and moving to think about the conflict between the desire for freedom and the need to love and be loved. The tape was produced by the German company COLOR OF MAY in cooperation with Azerbaijanfilm. The film featured wonderful Azerbaijani actors: Rasim Jafarov, Zulviya Gurbanova, Gurban Ismailov and Mir-Mevsum Mirzazade. Film crew also features Sitara Ibrahimova as production designer and Diana Aliyeva as assistent. The Rotterdam Festival, which is considered one of the most significant events in the world of cinema, will be held from January 23 to February 3, 2019.
