Karabakh war documentary submitted for Oscars consideration

PanARMENIAN.Net - The documentary "45 Days - The Fight For A Nation" by British filmmaker and journalist Emile Ghessen – a former British Royal Marines Commando – has been submitted to the Oscars Best Documentary Feature category, Ghessen himself revealed on Twitter.

The film was made during the Second Karabakh War in fall 2020, when Azerbaijan launched a large-scale military offensive against Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh).

"Recognising the significant amount of disinformation emerging from the war and lack of world news coverage, Emile travelled the region and embedded himself with local people – those who took up arms to fight. This is their story," the film's description says.

A total of 138 films have been submitted to the Oscars Best Documentary Feature category this year.
