“The Last Inhabitant,” a film directed by Jivan Avetisyan premiered within the framework of the 13th Golden Apricot Yerevan International Film Festival today.
The film tracks the events of 1988-1989 and shows how the Sumgait massacre affected the human destinies.

A few days later, Ibrahim finds the girl, named Yurga, in one of the psychiatric hospitals of Baku and brings her to Abgar.
