Armenia – 74 min. – directed by Ara Yernjakyan – Armenian with English subtitles – World Premiere
Starring two of Armenia’s most popular actors, THE JUBILEE VISITOR celebrates a coming of age in Yerevan cinema with an engaging plot that keeps the audience guessing till the very end. This mind twisting marvel takes place over a 48 hour span in Armenia’s capital and is reminiscent of the romantic drama THREE EVENINGS, screened at the 2010 Pomegranate Film Festival. Alternating between a mysterious spy thriller and a sensual love story, the film is the perfect fit for a Thursday night movie. Audience members will be treated to a brief intro by Dr. Artsvi Bakhchinyan, visiting professor of the History of Armenian Film and Theatre at the University of Michigan and Vice President of the Armenian Association of Film Critics and Cinema Journalists.
