Jacques Kébadian was born in France in 1940, the son of Armenian parents. For him, Armenia is a symbolic, imagined place, pieced together in the accounts of those who survived the genocide, in his grandmother’s watercolours, and in the love stories that resisted the diaspora. A ghost land, like the one Giovanni Vitrotti films in a travelogue a few years before the Genocide.
