    • Synopsis
    • The film “Artsakh - on the edge of eternity” is a unique journey to the origins of itself and, in general, to the origin of humanity, since, according to some scholars, Artsakh is considered the cradle of humanity, as well as Armenia.
      The film consists of four parts, which, in turn, are the four main elements of the universe: earth, water, air, fire. These four subsections make up the skeleton of the film, and the audience will be accompanied with a red thread from the very first seconds to the end of the film: love. The film has no narrative-explanatory text and an interview, as it does not aim to become a popular television film. This is a unique prayer to God.
      The film shows the visible and hidden beauty of Artsakh - historical and cultural monuments, cozy corners, caves, high cliffs, castles and monasteries - like ancient manuscripts. Special attention is paid to spiritual complexes, monasteries, ancient khachkars and Christian symbolism.
      A one-hour journey reveals for all of us the old, present and even future Artsakh - a small land rich in millennial history, with its constant struggle, pain, loss, and unbroken spirit.
