Jivan Avetisyan : une carrière déjà bien remplie

Jivan Avetisyan  a une carrière déjà bien remplie et est un habitué du Festival de Cannes . Il est venu cette année avec Hasmik Avetisyan (pas de lien de parenté) qui le seconde dans toute sa vie artistique .

L'opus qu'il nous avait présenté l'année dernière " Gate To Heaven" (en anglais, 90 minutes ) est en post-production 

Son nouveau film "Kaléidoscope " fait l'objet d'un grand mystère : il ne veut pratiquement en révéler pas grand-chose;

("Drama – Development 2020

An orphan seeking to return to his roots; a beloved makes a pilgrimage; a son loses his eyesight; a blind man overcomes his challenges")

Il remercie Shushanik Merdzakhanian , directrice du CNC d' Arménie pour l'aide qu'elle lui a apportée.

Jivan Avetisyan a montré son oeuvre aux USA, au Canada , en Allemagne, en Lithuanie, en Russie, en Italie et en Grande-Bretagne . Il lance un appel à la France pour qu'elle diffuse ses films .
