After the screening, a discussion about the situation of queers in Azerbaijan will be organized with the film’s creative team.

“The purpose of making the film is to analyze what happened on a personal basis and to be able to look at the post-transition years of my life from the outside. As a representation, it is important for me that we tell our own story and that people hear these stories from our language”, says Vusala Hajiyeva, the director of the film.

Directing education Vusala Hajiyeva is also a poet and blogger.

Azerbaijan is the co-founder of Transvisionary, the first platform focused on trans topics.

“Home is not always a comfort zone. Sometimes the house can turn into a real hell. If the place where you are staying, your hometown and everything around you is making you uncomfortable and your life is in physical danger as the last straw, the only alternative is to run away. This is exactly what brought me to an unplanned trip – to Tbilisi. Adapting to a new life in a new city, solving the problems I brought with me and asking “what happens next?” I have to find an answer to the question”, – it is mentioned in the synopsis of the film.
