Filmmaker: Lala Aliyeva

They whisper but sometimes scream


“When I traveled to this village, I did not intend to make a film about domestic violence in Azerbaijan. Daily shootings around the lake were intuitive. Then I started to hear the stories of women in the village. They slowly opened up to me. The lake, as a part of nature, turned into the landscape, incorporating the memories of the culture and the perception of the past and future. So I used my camera to record the interconnection between human and non human agencies.”
