The Waiting - New submission to ÉCU 2013

Uploaded on Wednesday 16 January 2013


Across the globe an estimated 27 million people have been internally displaced by conflict. One such conflict, on Europe's doorstep, is between the former Soviet states of Armenia and Azerbaijan. Since the crisis began some 20 years ago, many thousands have been killed but many more people, some half a million - a staggering 20% of Azerbaijan's total population - have been forced to flee their homes and live like refugees in their own country. With the peace process stalled and the constant threat of resumption of all out war, 'The Waiting' is a vivid and compelling portrait of those driven by the hope that one day they will return home.
