Atom Egoyan film coming to Golden Apricot Yerevan Festival

PanARMENIAN.Net - Canadian-Armenian filmmaker Atom Egoyan’s latest film, the widely acclaimed Seven Veils, which premiered at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, is the opening film of Golden Apricot Yerevan International Film Festival 2024, the press service of the Festival reports.

Egoyan himself will not only attend the festival, but also preside over the Apricot Stone short films competition jury.

Seven Veils is a harrowing and visually rich reinterpretation of Richard Strauss’ opera “Salome”, where Amanda Seyfried gives a brilliant performance as a theater director, struggling to give life to her own vision of the biblical story of Salome.

The film will be screened at the opening ceremony and during the festival week as a Yerevan Premiere.
