Azerbaijan has a long history in cinema with its first silent movie released on August 2, 1898. Among the first released documentaries were films like "Fire of the Bibi Heybat Oil Gusher" and “Festival in City Park”. In 1915 came Azerbaijan’s first feature film “The Reign of Oil and Millions”. Most of the movies or documentaries that are made in Azerbaijan are related to real issues of illiteracy, rights of women, and their struggle for freedom from USSR and in general the daily life of Azerbaijani people. Not many movies have been produced in recent years, but those that are usually get well received at film festivals around the world.

THEATRES

The kind of life that Azerbaijani people lead, the festivals they celebrate, their traditions and outlook towards life has a great impact on the theatre of Azerbaijan. Traditional ceremonies, their dressing styles, dialogs, all form an integral part of the Azerbaijani theatrical experience. Dramatic clothes, masks, traditional dances, chorus songs and dance dramatize a typical Azerbaijani play. The development of theatre has come a long way since Soviet rule to independent Azerbaijan. Theatre during Soviet rule represented the struggle of Azerbaijan’s people for their independence along with contemporary, cultural and traditional formations. Theatre after Azerbaijan achieved independence has changed much, with present situations and topics affecting the content of the play. It has started touring in foreign countries preserving and spreading their rich culture and tradition as well as the life of the Azerbaijani people.
