“Endless Corridor” brings Khojaly tragedy to screen with witnesses
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
What is going through a man’s mind when his family is killed in front of his eyes? What is it like to be a prisoner of war and to undergo torture?
For the first time, the truth is revealed about the massacre of defenseless Azerbaijani civilians perpetrated by Armenian and Russian soldiers in the small village of Khojaly in the Caucasian mountain region. Nearly 700 people were murdered and 10,000 were rendered homeless when their houses were destroyed during one night in 1992. The bloody conflict is shown but at the same time a story of bravery, sacrifice and redemption is depicted in this spectacularly filmed documentary.
It happened 20 years ago, but the full story has not been told throughout the world until now.
The historical documentary is presented to the audience through the eyes and words of a brave Lithuanian journalist who went on a quest for truth and the on-camera testimony of the victims and participants of the events.
Witness the human story of the musician who saved the lives of 50 neighbors but lost his wife and then spent months in torturous captivity. Meet a mother who gave birth and almost lost her newborn daughter if it had not been for the help of a Russian newspaperwoman who covered the war but became a hero.
The filmmakers have brought together for the first time in 20 years the heroes and the victims and the witnesses to give testimony to this tragic event. The lessons of “Endless Corridor” are more relevant to today’s worldwide conflicts and prejudices than ever before!
“They are not famous names – journalists Richard Lapaitis and Victoria Ivleva, mother and survivor Meribahn, musician and teacher Valeh. Their stories and those of witnesses and activists must be told and hopefully some good will come from the truth,” said producer and director Aleksandras Brokas.
Endless Corridor was produced and directed by Winner of Accolade Global Film Competition (The Best of Show) Aleksandras Brokas. It was narrated by Academy Award Winner Jeremy Irons. American Emmy Award winner (Joseph) Gerald Rafshoon is the executive producer of spectacular film.
