Official trailer for the film about 1988 devastating earthquake in Armenia released

The official trailer for “Earthquake” – a movie about the devastating 1988 earthquake in Armenia, which claimed several thousand lives, has been released.

Directed by Sarik Andreasyan, the movie was shot on the territory of an old Moscow factory, where the decorations of ruined Leninakan (now Gyumri) were constructed.

The crew first focused on the documentary materials, but things changed after the authors spent time talking to people affected by the tragedy. “Emotionally, this project is a very complex one,” Production Designer David Dadunashvili said.

The director said in one of the interviews that the “Earthquake” is a film about people and about the uniting factor of the tragedy.

The movie will be released in Russia and Armenia at the end of 2016. Armenia will probably nominate it for the Oscar in the “Best Foreign Language Film” nomination.
