By: Amina Nazarli

Baku’s Heydar Aliyev Palace will host an event marking the jubilee of the outstanding Russian film director, Nikita Mikhalkov.

The Oscar-winning film director will present his program titled “Svoy sredi svoikh” to the Azerbaijani audience.

Mikhalkov, who heads the Russian Cinematographers’ Union, has recently been awarded “Dostluq” (Friendship) Order by the President of Azerbaijan.

He is the director of films like “Five Nights”, “Unfinished Piece for the Player Piano”, “A few Days in the Life of I.I Oblomov”, “Without Witnesses”, “Black Eyes”, “Urga: Territory of Love”, “Burnt by the Sun”, “The Barber of Siberia” and others.

He won an Oscar in 1994 for an anti-Stalin movie.

Incorporating several short stories by Chekhov, Dark Eyes (1987) stars Marcello Mastroianni as an old man who tells a story of a romance he had when he was younger, a woman he has never been able to forget. The film was highly praised, and Mastroianni received the prize for Best Actor at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival and an Academy Award nomination for his performance.

Mikhalkov’s next film, Urga, set in the little-known world of the Mongols, received the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Mikhalkov’s Anna: 6–18 (1993) documents his daughter Anna as she grows from childhood to maturity.
