support of the Culture Ministry. The documentary was shot on the
eve of Victory Day. Interesting details of the Shusha operation,
one of the most important battles of the Second Karabakh War, were

includes interviews of soldiers and officers, who carried out the
Shusha operation, as well as exclusive shots, taken during the

'In the history of Azerbaijani cinema, Samad Mardanov was the
only film director armed with great skills to bring inner feelings
to the screen. He made a short film about the life of nomads in
Karabakh. Unfortunately, that film has not reached to this day.
Director Abdul Hasanov made several films related to Karabakh, and
director Huseyin Seyidzada shot the film Koroglu in Askaran Castle.
These film directors are people, who made great contributions to
Azerbaijani cinema,' said Guliyev.
