Director Armen Ronov

Production year 2013

Length 61min.

Country Armenia/Turkey/Russia


A poetry-film based on  sweeping Khachatur Abovyan’s novel of love and longing Wounds of Armenia, weaved in the spring of 1832 as an eulogy for nature and a pondering over nation’s unfree status. Slightly imaginative conventionally,  thoughts and feelings of the son of  “apple-like” people entering into “winter dormancy” but regenerating over and over in spring, are relived through with colorful, vivid illustrations, metaphoric comparisons and picturesque descriptions.
