Aznavour, Peleshian at 2013 Golden Apricot Film Festival, Yerevan

~~The Tenth Golden Apricot Film Festival kicked off this week in Yerevan and will run till July 14.  Two near-legendary Armenian artists will be honored  this year: the very visible and energetic Charles Aznavour, 89, and the “silent” Ardavazt Peleshian, 75, author of a handful of highly original films and of the theory of “distance montage.”  On this occasion, I will be re-posting, first, my article on Peleshian, which appeared in AIM Magazine in the 1990s. AIM has since ceased publication. Later in the week, I will re-post the Aznavour article.~~

    Thank you for this Taline. Talk about knowing about a master after they are gone and being happy that they have left so much to discover them with.
