For more than one year YARAT Centre has been providing a platform for series of talks featuring artists, writers, musicians, researchers, entrepreneurs and other public figures who were asked to share their opinion and express their thoughts about contemporary art and specific works from the collection and engage with the audience.
Last summer due to serious reasons we had to cancel a talk by famous scriptwriter and director RAMIZ FATALIYEV. We are happy to announce that, this much-anticipated talk will happen next Thursday - November 24th. Come and join to what is going to be an engaging discussion!
RAMIZ FATALIYEV is a film director and scriptwriter who graduated from VGIK (Russian State School of Cinematography) and wrote more than 40 feature films including “Family business” (dir. Nikolai Maletski), “Without witnesses” (Nikita Mikhalkoff), “I loved you more than life” (dir. Rasim Ismailov), “An Umbrella for the Newlyweds” (dir. Rodion Nakhopetov), “The Scoundrel” (dir.
