The Culture Ministry and Moscow cinema "Illusion" invite cinema fans to enjoy Azerbaijani films.
The retrospective of Azerbaijani cinema will be shown on February 7-15.
The program offers a broad view of the development of Azerbaijani cinematography: from silent films to the work of contemporary directors who have received recognition at international film festivals.
"This is the first large-scale retrospective of Azerbaijani cinematography in the history of modern Russia. More than half of the films will be shown from 35 mm film from the archive.
