In Between Dying / Sepelenmis Ölümler Arasinda
Dir: Hilal Baydarov / Azerbaijan, Mexico, USA / 88 Minutes / Azerbaijani // 2020
Davud is a misunderstood, restless young man in search of his ‘true’ family, those whom he feels certain will bring love and therefore meaning to his life. Over the course of one strange day, pursued by men he has crossed and sure this day will be his last, Davud’s search leads him to encounters with a number of unexpected deaths and a series of women striving to liberate themselves from subjugation. As he journeys, each death and each liberation causes invisible memories and selfconstructed narratives to rise to the surface of his consciousness. Davud is propelled into a journey of self-discovery that leads him finally back to the place he has always lived, and the love that was always there.
