Beyond the Ararat

Audio Tracks

The film is a voyage between reverie and reality, where we cross both inner and geographic boarders. By train, we travel through Europe and Turkey, to the closed boarder between Turkey and Armenia… As the train advances, we pass the names of cities. The landscapes and the light changes, the languages multiply. Encounters in the train or during stops are the stepping-stones. I observe faces, and ponder women’s expressions, to find like in a mirror part of my own identity. The train car’s window is like a screen where Europe streaks by in a search of it’s own identity.
