French-Armenian film director Arnaud Khayadjanian is readying a feature drama about Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh), its people, the rhythm of life and much more.
Titled “Artsakh”, the movie centers on universal stories, inspired by true events, with Khayadjanian paying homage to Karabakh, an emerging country.
Sometimes funny, sometimes dramatic, “Artsakh” addresses a variety of themes such as friendship, patriotism, youth, culture, family.
“It is a ‘hyperlink movie’ which shows many characters (around 20) telling several little stories”,
In the film, the people of Karabakh introduce themselves to the world through endearing characters, the film’s description on Kickstarter says.
