Barber of Shushi // 2014

Director / Producer / Cinematographer / Editor

In April 2016, the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict escalated to a level of violence not seen since the ceasefire was declared in 1994. The fighting between Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh has calmed but the outcome of the war is still undecided. For thousands in the mountainous republic, life must continue with the everyday needs of people. And in the quiet city of Shushi, a barber cuts the hair of a customer, as he has done long before the war began.
