Avetik

84' - 1992 - Drama - Dialogue: Armenian
Director: Don Askarjan With: Alik Asatryan, Mikhail Stepanyan, Karen Dzhanibekyan, Eduard Saribekjan
Askarian has created a majestically beautiful film. His present film is reaching into new areas of subconscious perception. As all visionaries of the diaspora, the director travels more through memory; in this case, his main character exits reality by simply crossing a road so that he can re-enter the realm of a deeper, more real and more personal world. Homeland is the basis of the artist' s psyche, and in Askarian' s film this is expressed in icon-like images of a religious dimension. (D. Eipidis, Toronto Film festival, 1992)
