Georgian director hopes to make documentary on Ali and Nino novel
Georgian film director Giorgi Toradze plans to make a documentary about the creation of the popular novel "Ali and Nino".
The novel was written by an Azerbaijani emigrant under the pen-name Gurban Said in 1937.
The film project has been submitted to the Azerbaijani Ministry of Culture and Tourism by film producer Giorgi Sturua.
According to Toradze, for the film to be realistic, the script writer and designer should be Azerbaijani. The role of the patriotic Ali has to be played by an Azerbaijani actor, while his wife Nino has to be played by a Georgian.
The film will be shot in Azerbaijan and abroad. It will include scenes showing Azerbaijan's struggle for independence after the First World War and the invasion of the 11th Red Army.
"In addition, I think that the film must be in Azerbaijani. I am planning to submit my film to international film festivals," the director said.
