Charles Aznavour Square, which by the efforts of the Golden Apricot IFF was transformed into a stellar alley of the famous artists' stars of Armenian cinema, hosted the opening ceremony of the stars dedicated to the writers, screenwriters Hrant Matevosyan and Aghasi Ayvazyan.
The opening ceremony of the stars took place on the evening of July 12 with the participation of a limited number of people, observing all the rules of safety.
"Today is a very important day for us, because our elders, who left us, are waiting for our attitude. Some years ago, Golden Apricot opened this alley of stars to always remember the unjustly forgotten Armenian cinematographers. We love them, we have seen their films, we have seen the difficult conditions in which they create cinema. We are their successors, "- the founder and president of the Golden Apricot Harutyun Khachatryan noted at the opening ceremony of the stars, emphasizing the activities of the two figures, expressing hope that no one will forget them and their contribution.
The family members of Hrant Matevosyan and Aghasi Ayvazyan spoke at the ceremony, expressing their gratitude to the festival for keeping such an initiative the memory of the famous cinematographers.
