Revealing the reality lying behind an oil-rich nation’s glitzy facade, this film portrays two starkly different Azerbaijani politicians. The first, a former Eurovision winner, inspires national pride with his tolerant ideology and charisma, while the other is associated with corruption and failure. Blending personal testimonies of human rights abuses largely ignored by European leaders with the aesthetics of pop culture, Amazing Azerbaijan uses engaging characters to unearth little-known histories of societal oppression
