Index on Censorship and Crow Hill Films invite you to a screening of Amazing Azerbaijan! followed by a discussion on Azerbaijan, Eurovision and human rights.
Amazing Azerbaijan! pulls back the glittery facade that this oil-rich nation presented to the world when hosting Eurovision 2012, telling personal stories of human rights abuses to which Europe’s leaders have turned a blind eye. The screening will be followed by a discussion about Azerbaijan’s human rights record and position in Europe, with speakers to be confirmed.
The event is the first in a European outreach campaign, supported by The Bertha BRITDOC Connect Fund.Tags: Authoritarian
The winter issue of Index on Censorship magazine brings together articles from writers including the Bishop of Bradford, Salil Tripathi, Samira Ahmed and Kaya Genc. There’s an interview with Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti ahead of the opening of her new play, and 10 years after Bezhti; while cartoonist Martin Rowson writes and draws about how comedy and religious offence come into conflict.
