CinemaPlus celebrates Memorial Day with the screening of the film "Old Suitcases"


On September 27, there was private screening of the film "Köhnə çamadanlar" (Old suitcases) about the First and Second Karabakh War in the premium class cinema "CinemaPlus", located in the shopping center "Ganclik Mall" devoted to the Day of Memory.

Before the screening of the film, devoted to the Day of Memory of the Martyrs, the creative team of the film, real heroes and veterans of the Second Karabakh War, spoke and shared their feelings. The main characters of the film suffered the brunt of those events on their own shoulders and who knows, if not them, what war is.

People's artist Mammad Syafa, who played the character of martyr’s father in the film, as well as participants in the First Karabakh War Aliya Piriyeva, Kamala Gakhramanova, Khanimzer Hasanova and Mahabbat Pashayeva, as well as veterans of the 44-day Patriotic War, spoke about what they experienced, what feelings, thoughts they had, how to go through the pain for the loss of loved ones, for their home, for their Motherland.

They said that they still bear the brunt of the war, both physical and spiritual burden, and all the frames of what is happening in front of their eyes until now. The merciless war left a deep mark on their lives and thanks to such films, they hope that the future generation will understand what our land went through, what loss they experienced and cherished the world that now reigns thanks to these people.

The movie is based on real facts. It tells about the fates and tragedies of women of the first and second Karabakh wars, with a difference of almost 30 years... there are soldiers, mothers of martyrs, sisters, wives, doctors, prisoners and refugees amongst those women who were and are the victims of Armenian aggression and war. Different stories, united by the same drama, taking place against the backdrop of the war, in difficult psychological conditions, but most importantly - always with confidence and trust in Victory!
