Aghayan fairytale-based “Anahit” animation to premiere in December

PanARMENIAN.Net - Anahit animation film, based on beloved folklorist Ghazaros Aghayan’s fairytale, will premiere in early December, the film co-author told PanARMENIAN.Net

According to David Sahakyants, with film production mostly finalized, the animation will be shown in cinemas during a month, to be followed by a festival tour.

“We received an invitation to participate in Toronto Festival, yet had to refuse because of timing: the festival is due in November, while the film will debut in December,” Sahakyants, who didn’t rule out participation next year, said.

Production on the animation, financed by the Ministry of Culture, launched back in 2010, scheduled to be completed in 2012 but delayed over additional episodes that required filming.

The stellar voice cast of Anahit includes Rafael Kotanjyan, Hrant Tokhatyan, Shushan Petrosyan, Nazeni Hovhannisyan, Mkrtich Arzumanyan, David Babayan, Vardan Zadoyan, Khoren Levonyan.

The film soundtrack includes songs by Shushan Petrosyan, Gor Sujyan, Tigran Petrosyan, Nick Egibyan, Hasmik Karapetyan and Akunq ethnographic ensemble.

“Upon completion of production, we’ll apply to a number of festivals for participation. After dubbing, the film will be screened in Russia, with the authors planning an English-language version as well,” Sahakyants said.
