Jivan Avetisyan’s “Tevanik” feature film about the Artsakh war will premiere at Moscow Cinema tonight. The film tells about one day in an Armenian village.

The director presents the Artsakh war through the tragedy of three children. “The destiny of three young people – Aram, Astghik and Tevanin – is a dramatic story, through which I have tried to tell about people in a small village in wartime, about their love and sacrifices,” Jivan Avetisyan told reporters today.

The film has been created on the basis of a short film script written by Arnold Aghababov in 1990s. Karine Khodikyan continued the work and developed it into a script for a feature film.

Director Jivan Avetisyan is preparing to present the film at the Cinema Market of the 67th Cannes Film Festival.
