Armenia Sacra, a 65-minute documentary film by the French-Armenian film director Narek Voskanian will be screened in Paris and other European cities shortly. The film is the director’s second feature-length documentary, following “Treasures of Armenia”.
The main theme of the film is medieval Armenian architecture: churches, monasteries, fortresses and their history, as well as the nature of Armenia. The history of monuments and churches is presented in detail by the French opera singer Mario Hacquard. Many of the churches, monasteries, and fortresses filmed in Artsakh are now located in the territories occupied by Azerbaijan, and in fact, the film presents exclusive and last time authenticated footage.
The film shot both from the sky and from the ground aims to familiarize Armenians and foreign audiences with the culture, nature, and history of Armenia. The renouned Armenologist Jean-Pierre Mahet gives an exclusive interview in the film.
