A unique and fascinating documentary by Spanish filmmakers Miguel Angel Nieto and Hugo Herrera.
The Ottoman Empire and the rising Turkey almost cause the near extinction of the Armenian Nation. As a result, 70% of Armenians still live outside their country, mainly in France, Spain, United States and Russia, in their own huge diaspora. They demonstrate that they are capable of success in life and of course in fields such as art, sports, music and business.
The Shadow of Ararat follows this scattered and indomitable nation showing us the path of some internationally renowned Armenians, artists, historians, filmmakers, singers, businessmen, showing us a little bit of their traditions and history.
Features interviews including Charles Aznavour, Ara Malikian, José Antonio Gurriarán, Rosy Armen, Robert Guédiguian, and Emile Lahoud amongst others.
