After spending much of his life photographing the most important moments in his country’s recent history, Armenian artist Gagik Harutyunyan lost his passion for photography. Yet, his images of Armenia gaining independence from the Soviet Union and the war with Azerbaijan have contributed to revitalizing art photography in this communist country. Through exclusive interviews, archival footage, and reflections on photography, this film offers a moving portrait of an artist who helped trace the complex cultural and emotional aspects of a nation and its citizens.
