Azerbaijan's Invisible Crisis
Dette arrangementet fokuserer på krisen i Aserbajdsjan, med visning av All Monsters are Human og etterfølgende debatt.
In the wake of a vicious anti-LGBT government crackdown in Azerbaijan in September 2017, this documentary film follows the plight of three young LGBT Azeris fearing for their lives. On a journey from Istanbul to Baku, the filmmakers combine animation and video footage to reveal stories of extortion, torture and murder, and discover that for those who have managed to escape, persecution has followed them. It’s a universal story of identity, survival and enduring love in a place that seeks to destroy it.
Talk after the screening: Azerbaijan’s Invisible Crisis
The year 2017 became a dark chapter in history for LGBT persons around the world, with violent crackdowns in Chechnya, Indonesia, Egypt and many more. In September, rumours appeared that Azerbaijani authorities were orchestrating arrests, torturing detainees and fabricating trials against the LGBT community. With international attention quickly fading, the Azerbaijani crisis has become largely invisible, despite the LGBT community living under constant pressure.
Hear about the situation for LGBT persons in Azerbaijan, and to meet those who are fighting for these stories to be heard. In this panel, people from Azerbaijani civil society will discuss the events from 2017 and what has happened since, and about how it is to be LGBT in what is considered to be among the worst countries for LGBT in Europe.
