The second annual award ceremony of cultural diversity media prize “ADAMI” was held in Kyiv, Ukraine on November 24 with participants present from the European Union’s Eastern Partnership program: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
The winner of the ADAMI Media Prize for Information (non – fiction) was the film Forbidden Friends, which examined the story of two women living in Tbilisi: one an Armenian, one an Azerbaijani, and how they have had to maneuver at times in the face of challenges to what some may see as their ‘unconventional’ friendship.
“Chai – Khana”
, the film goes back in forth between Edita Badasyan and Gunel Movlud as they discuss their friendship, the Nagorno Karabakh conflict and other issues related to Armenia and Azerbaijan.
According to Radio Azadliq, last year the same prize was won by Azerbaijani director, Oqtay Namazov, for his film, “30 families.”
