Endless Corridor (Endless Corridor, 2014)
Directors: Aleksandras Brokas, Mindaugas Urbonavicius
Eurochannel presents 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.
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 after this venture of five years was premiered in London at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). However, 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.
Discover the hidden truth behind a massacre that should become a painful lesson of history to never be repeated. Come alongside Jeremy Irons to pay homage to the 613 victims left by a tragedy.
Narrated by Jeremy Irons, this is a definitive account of the heart-rending human rights tragedy in 1992 when hundreds of Azerbaijanis were massacred after Armenians stormed the city of Khojaly. It happened over 20 years ago, but the full story has not been told throughout the world until now.
