The Fight for a nation
about 45 days film
On the 27th day of September 2020, Azerbaijani forces supported by NATO member Turkey, launched full scale attacks on the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, also known as Artsakh, against Armenian Armed Forces. Former British Royal Marines Commando turned documentary filmmaker Emile Ghessen, travelled to the region to see firsthand what was going on.
The war lasted 44 days and on the 45th day, a trilateral peace agreement was signed, ending hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan. With thousands of men killed and thousands of people being displaced from their homes, Armenia lost majority of the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. The raw unseen footage of “45 Days: The Fight For A Nation” tells the story of the war and post war from an Armenian perspective in a humanisation feature documentary film.
