“Paradjanov” wins big at Hayak Cinema Awards

PanARMENIAN.Net - Serge Avedikian and Olena Fetisova’s “Paradjanov” won 4 prizes at Hayak National Cinema Awards.

“Paradjanov” garnered the Best Film prize, Avedikyan got the accolades as Best Actor, with Avedikian and Fetisova named the best filmmakers. Vladislav Ryzhikov won the Best Production Designer prize.

In 2014, the award was dedicated to the 90th birth anniversary of the outstanding filmmaker.

“Paradjanov,” co-produced with Ukraine, France, Georgia and Armenia, stars Avedikian as the brilliant director, whose nonconformist behavior conflicts with Soviet System. Parajanov’s eccentricities land him in jail, where his indestructible love for beauty allows him to withstand the years of imprisonment, isolation and oblivion.

In 2013, “Paradjanov” was named the best feature film at Odessa Festival.
