    • TRANSFORMATION, a new film dedicated to the great Armenian poet Yeghishe Charents
      A new short documentary TRANSFORMATION, shot in Kars, Eastern Turkey, is ready to unreel at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
      Dedicated to the great Armenian lyrical poet Yeghishe Charents, true to its title, the film explores cultural changes imposed on Armenian structures throughout time.
      Conceived by a young artist-painter, Arman Tadesvoysan, native of Gyumri, Armenia, in collaboration with German Cameraman and filmmaker Thomas Balkenhol, who teaches cinema art at the Ankara University and Helen Dobrensky, during their last November visit to Eastern Turkey's Festival on Wheels in KARS, a debut presentation at the Kars Cultural Centre was warmly welcomed by Turkish students and film pros attending.
