Baku, September 26, AZERTAC
Documentary "Targeting Baku. How Hitler Lost the Battle for Oil" will be screened at the Parliament of London.
The objective of shooting the film, dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Victory over fascism, was to show Azerbaijani people's role in securing victory over the fascism to the whole world and, at the same time, convey historical truth to future generations.
In the film, the history of the World War 2nd is looked at from completely new standpoint – a battle for oil.
The head of the project is Arzu Aliyeva, producer of the film Louis Vaudeville, and director Robert Mugnerot.
With the timing of 52 minutes, the colour documentary's shooting took place in the course of 14 months. While working on the documentary "Targeting Baku. How Hitler Lost the Battle for Oil", 200-hour video material, as well as numerous photos and other documents were examined in archives of Azerbaijan, Germany, the Great Britain, France and Russia. In the film, video materials reflecting different battle scenes - so far not shown - are presented in a restored colour format.
The film has been translated into the Russian, English, French, German, Italian and other languages, along with Azerbaijani.
