Films on Azerbaijan produced in Los Angeles
Supported by Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism as well as Azerbaijan’s Consulate General in Los Angeles, five new documentary films on Azerbaijan were produced in the United States. The films are titled as follow:
“Azerbaijan: Land of Hope & Inspiration”;
“Cultural & Natural History of Azerbaijan”;
“Baku: Jewel of the Caspian”;
“Jews of Azerbaijan: A Model for Muslim-Jewish Coexistence”;
“Christian & Muslim Villages of Azerbaijan”.
The documentaries provide information about Azerbaijan’s rich and colorful culture, history, traditions, beautiful nature and tourism opportunities; they highlight the steady development of Azerbaijan as an independent nation since 1991, and the country’s positive multiculturalism and successful model of multi-faith tolerance and harmony, which allow for Muslims, Christians, Jews and representatives of other faiths to continue to live together in peace and mutual respect.
The films have already been aired by over 20 TV channels of the United States. By the end of 2016, the films will be shown by 50 television stations located in 21 U.S. states, including California, reaching 19 million homes.
The documentaries were filmed and produced by ECONEWS Television and Radio Series.
