From Ararat to Zion documentary telling about the Armenian pilgrims and clergymen in Jerusalem will be screened in Yerevan on May 5.
“The work on the film caused a cultural shock,” film director Edgar Baghdasaryan said.
“The uniqueness of the film is that the story is told not by Armenians but Europeans – Germans, Italians and French,” said Father Mesrop Aramian, the scriptwriter and producer. “We have filmed almost all Armenian inscriptions in Egypt and Palestine. The film was made up of materials provided Assyrian, Greek, Egyptian and other sources. It’s a discovery from the beginning to end.”
“This documentary is a message for our young generation,” said Ralph Yirikian, Vivacell-MTS General Manager.
The world premiere will take place on May 12 in the UK.
