First of its kind: Azerbaijani "Street Fighters" film hits the internet - PHOTO - VIDEO

01 July 2010 [08:35] - TODAY.AZ
A few days ago, a short documentary film "Street Fighters" shot in Azerbaijan hit the internet.

The whole film was directed by himself, using just one camera. Story of the film focuses on the life of the homeless animals in Azerbaijan (Baku), and the director compares the animals to the "fighters" who practically have to "fight" for everything in their life, and each new day for them, can be their last.

"Supposedly this is the first film of its kind, shot in our country. At least, from what I know, there were only articles and short video reports on this issue. No movie was ever done, probably because its a non-commercial thing, and something not everyone would want to get into", explained the director.

The film features not only the animals themselves, but also short interviews with ordinary people of Azerbaijani capital, and an interview with the Head of Azerbaijani Animal Protection Alliance, Mansura Rasulzade.

"I know, I could have done better, but since everything I had to do myself, there were some obvious mistakes. I hope the point of the film will get to the people, and actually make them think more about the four-legged friends they live on the same ground with", said the director.

The film is being distributed only by "Compiler Pictures", and it has been shot in russian. Its free for watching, and can be viewed here:
