On Thursday April 14th, a world premiere screening is scheduled to take place in Pasadena at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 on 673 East Colorado Boulevard, followed by Q & A with the filmmakers and cast and after party at the Hot Spot Edwin Mills, located at the intersection of Mills Place and Edwin Alley at 22 Mills Place. You can buy your tickets for the exclusive premiere HERE!
Friday, April 15th is the big release, where you can catch the movie, apart from Pasadena, in Laemmle NoHo 7 at 5240 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood and the MGN 5 Star Cinema located at 128 North Maryland Avenue in Glendale.
Armenia, My Love is directed by the Romanian American Diana Angelson, who also stars in and wrote the screenplay, and revolves around the plight of a once happy Armenian family, living in the Ottoman Empire on the occupied territory of Armenian Homeland, now Eastern Turkey in 1915, whose dreams for the future become memories in the eyes of the most famous Armenian American artist, who lives to paint the story of his shattered childhood.
“While Armenia, My Love does expose the harshrealities faced by the entire Armenian People who were violently ripped from their homeland,” said Angelson who felt compelled to produce this film by her many Armenian friends and connections and the powerful story they had to share. “It is Armenia, My Love’s strong messages of hope, love, faith, perseverance and strength that I wanted to prevail.”
Armenia, My Love is brought to life by a highly-regarded cast along with Angelson including the incomparable Shake Tukhmanyan, Arman Nshanian and Nazo Bravo, who is also an increasingly-popular Armenian Rapper, among others.
Also proving to be a vital player in the film is the awe-inspiring artwork created by Romanian artist Paula Matei which adds yet another layer of depth to Armenia, My Love. Another distinction, adding potency to Armenia, My Love, is the way it is masterfully shot and edited with happy scenes in color fading to black and white during the genocide.
Angelson’s plan for the film following the Los Angeles theatrical release?
“Hopefully it will travel the world and it will teach many people kindness,” she said with both a smile and a tear.
