On November 15-16, 4 documentaries participating in the CinéDOC International Film Festival were screened in Ejmiatsin.
Films by Armenian, Ukrainian, Italian and Croatian directors tell the stories about the life of the people living in different parts of the world.
Two films were screened on the first day.
The short silent film "90 Seconds in North Korea" of the Croatian director Ranko Pauković presented the lives of the people living in one of the most closed social systems.
According to the director, this was a unique opportunity to represent the lives of the ordinary citizens without military columns and military marches, as it is done in other films about North Korea.
The second film was the joint work of Armenian directors Inna Sahakyan and Arman Yeritsyan - "The Last Tightrope Dancer in Armenia".
This is a story about two tightrope dancers - Zhora and Knyaz, having a profession which has lost public interest in recent years, and the only person who continues their work - young Hovsep.
The film has won numerous awards at international film festivals.
On the second day, Valentina Primavera's "Una Primavera" and Roman Bondarchuk's "Dixie Land" films were screened.
