The feature-documentary film “The final sitting”, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, has been produced with the support of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation. Presentation of the film took place on May 25, 2018 at the Heydar Aliyev Centre.


Vice-president of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Leyla Aliyeva and President of the Baku Media Centre, chief producer of the film Arzu Aliyeva attended the ceremony.


The film sheds light on the difficult days of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic’s history and the grave conditions on which the government took their final decision.


The film’s script has been written on the basis of archive documents so far not researched, or kept secret. The film talks about unequal and hopeless, yet steadfast and decisive struggle of the founders of the Democratic Republic against the enemies of our independence – either the occupation army, or its internal supporters.


Some 6 months of work has been carried out over this film project, with shootings continuing 32 days in 25 places. Shootings of the film were carried out in the capital, regions, as well as on the territories where these historical events took place.
