We've been setting this exhibition up for nearly two years. I believe that its language – the language of Art – eloquently conveys the great accomplishments our country has made in all spheres of achievement.
On December 29, presentation of the documentary “Goygol National Park”, produced within the framework of the project “9 Wonders of Azerbaijan” by IDEA Public Union, took place at Nizami Cinema Centre.
Vice-president of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, founder and head of IDEA Public Union Leyla Aliyeva attended the presentation ceremony.
Before the film’s presentation, Leyla Aliyeva acquainted herself with photos shot by Igor Byshnyov, the director of the documentary “Goygol National Park”, during the shootings.
Addressing the ceremony, Igor Byshnyov, thanking Leyla Aliyeva - the initiator of the project “Goygol National Park” - shared his impressions of the film’s shooting process. He said the fact that meetings here start with trailers of the next film is a good tradition. It was informed that the project was implemented by IDEA Public Union.
The director said: “The first film shot within the framework of the project was “Shirvan National Park”, which was presented last year, and the second one was the documentary “A Paradise of Birds – Aghgol National Park”, presented in April this year. And today, I am very pleased to participate in the presentation of the documentary “Goygol National Park” at the end of the year.
Goygol National Park was created in 1925, and the film is devoted to the 90th anniversary of its creation.
It was emphasized that the first two films shot within the framework of the project are purely devoted to nature, and the documentary “Goygol National Park” is not only about nature, but also about Azerbaijan’s centuries-old culture, and archaeological disaster.
It was emphasized that participation of President Ilham Aliyev in the inaugurations of national parks in Azerbaijan is a very pleasant event.
Igor Byshnyov, thanking head of the project Leyla Aliyeva, said it was very interesting to collaborate with IDEA. IDEA Public Union’s ecological education of children is very significant.
Congratulating everyone on the 90th anniversary of the Goygol National Park, he said this film is a present for holidays.
