Nabat by Azerbaijani filmmakers has been premiered as part of the 50th Chicago International film festival.
Produced at Azerbaijanfilm studio, the film was shot in 2014. The story highlights the Karabakh war. The story revolves around a village`s residents who are forced to leave their homes because of the war. But an old woman refuses to leave her family members buried in the village.
