Armenia's Official Entry for Best International Feature at the 93rd Academy Awards
Inspired by true events, this is a film about a childhood friendship, torn apart by the horrific Hamidian massacres perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire. At a time of dire prejudice, a brave Turkish woman risks her own life and the life of her family to save her best friend who is hunted down for her religious beliefs. This epic portrayal spans from 1881 to 1915, Constantinople, taking us on an emotional journey to the last concert given by Archbishop Komitas. A moving biographical story, woven on the tapestry of the sacred and ancient music of Archbishop Solomon, also known as Komitas.
