An Imaginary Homeland
Watch Stone Time Touch to learn about the Armenian diaspora, when you watch this documentary that feels like a dream.
Each of the main characters in the film have a different perspective, so reality varies from person to person.
I found it interesting to learn more about Armenians and also to see how individuals can view things differently based on who they are.
The film is in both English and Armenian, but subtitles are also provided.
Release Date 8/10/21
Experimental filmmaker Gariné Torossian wove together a poetic collage of memory, loss, and expectation, when she made this essay documentary of a real and imagined Armenia.
A young woman’s journey to her homeland is interwoven with photographs and, also, the reflections of actress Arsinée Khanjian.
She recounts the powerful stories she was told during her visits to Armenia, which unpeels her own expectations of the imaginary homeland.
This diary-like exploration is layered with religious iconography, ritual, contemporary struggle, and the burden of history.
The beautifully haunting voices of the Armenian-American à capella folk trio Zulal underscore the emotional connection the women share.
The land is and is not theirs, which results in an elegiac and sensory investigation into the concepts of home, identity and place.
