Amazing Azerbaijan

Director: Liz Mermin

Amazing Azerbaijan is a tale of two Azerbaijans: one the tolerant, Eurovision-winning, secular democratic republic that the government proudly puts on display for visiting journalists and dignitaries; the other a repressive and corrupt oligarchy with little respect for democracy or human rights. This investigative documentary offers radically differing perspectives from a range of Azerbaijan residents and asks why European neighbours tolerate the regime’s behaviour. Might it be because Azerbaijan provides an alternative to Russia as a major world supplier of oil and gas?
