ARMENIA is a cinematic interweaving of film, literature and history - deliberately refusing to adhere to traditional rules of film genres. The world-weary singer Haig Boghos embarks on a personal journey revisiting his family's history of genocide, exile and diaspora. Alain Croubalian slips into the role of Haig Boghos, merging autobiographical and historical facts with poetic fiction. Through abstraction his history becomes a universal tale of displacement. Boghos shares his thoughts and feelings with the audience and leads them on an introspective journey - a road movie of the mind. The elegiac imagery, subtle performance and hauntingly beautiful soundtrack seduce the audience into a psychological and historical journey into the unknown.
