Endless Corridor screened to Parisian cinephiles
On 9 March, the immensely moving independent documentary Endless Corridor – a US/Lithuanian co-production – was shown at the long-established multi-disciplinary Parisian literary arts hub known as L’Entrepôt, commemorating the victims of the Khojaly Massacre on 26 February 1992. This was the worst single atrocity of the Armenian–Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh and claimed the lives of 613 civilian victims. This short report contains reminiscences from H.E. Jean Perrin, first French Ambassador to Azerbaijan from 1992–96, who saw the aftermath of the Khojaly Massacre; and Lithuanian journalist Ricardas Lapaitis – an eyewitness to the tragedy. We also hear the reactions of Irina Bilic, Director, Europa Film Akt (EFA), which organised the screening in collaboration with TEAS France; film director Maxim Mardhoukaev, and other audience members.
