Jul 12 2007
YEREVAN, JULY 12, NOYAN TAPAN. Indian film director Ramchandra PN,
a participant of the Golden Apricot (Voske Tsiran) 4th international
film festival, visits Armenia for the first time. As he characterized,
Armenians are wonderful, smiling, hospitable and friendly people. "This
country has a wonderful territory. And when I got off the plane,
I was fascinated by the marvellous view in front of me, the biblical
Mount Ararat," the Indian film director shared his impressions with
Noyan Tapan correspondent.
Ramchandra PN is just getting acquainted with the Armenian culture,
but he knows that Armenians have Parajanov, who is known by its unique
philosophical films in cinematography: "I have already purchased some
of his films."
The Indian film director is convinced that Armenia and India are
among countries having the oldest cultures, and it will be good
"if we unite and shoot films together, as the film directors of both
countries have this potential."
The film The Cleansing Rites is the film director’s first feature
film. It is included in the international fiction films contest
program of the Golden Apricot film festival.
In the film director’s words, in the film The Cleansing Rites he has
touched upon the family rites and customs of all religious communities
living in India. These rites are gradually disappearing and consigned
to oblivion. And the way of that oblivion, in the film director’s
words, is full of clashes and problems.
