New York - Seven short films were presented last night at the Lincoln Center in New York as part of Armenians in Film - an annual celebration of emerging Armenian filmmakers presented by the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU).
Creative Armenia founding director Garin Hovannisian was present to introduce our own production Children of War, a human rights anthology consisting of four short films: Pim Pam Pum (a thriller set in Spain by Asier Urbieta and Andoni de Carlos), Human Rights (a drama set in Armenia by Vahe Terteryan), Pomegranate Tree (an animation by Anna Maria Mouradian), and Green & Black (a docudrama set in Syria by Aram Shahbazyan). These films were selected from submissions to our 60-second film challenge with Terry George.
The six other films were the work of filmmakers Garen Barsegian, Ovsanna Gevorgyan, Avo John Kambourian, Emily Mkrtichian and Anahid Yahjian, Eric Shahinian, and Raffi Wartanian.
A discussion with the filmmakers followed the screening in a panel co-sponsored by Creative Armenia and moderated by Hovannisian.
“Creative Armenia is proud of these artists,” Hovannisian said. “They represent a new generation of voices and visions which are changing the shape of our culture.”
Children of War has been most recently screened at Batumi International Documentary Film Festival, the Arpa International Film Festival in Los Angeles, Document International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival in Glasgow, and at the We The Peoples Film Festival in London. A December screening is forthcoming at the Tbilisi International Film Festival.
