You are one of the greatest representatives of the modern Armenian culture. Our entire nation rightfully takes pride in you. Your creations from their very first step have become a phenomenon not only in the Armenian but in the world cinematography. You are one of the greatest movie masters and movie theorists of the 20th century.
I once again congratulate you on your jubilee and wish you many years ahead and new creative achievements. I wish that you, in Parajanov’s word, an “exceptional movie genius” will bring new joy and unique ideas to your audiences for the glory of the Armenian cinema art.”
