Join us on February 20 at 8:45 pm in the small hall of Cinema Světozor in Prague for a screening of 5 Dreamers and a Horse, a documentary from contemporary Armenia. You can also look forward to a Q&A with Vahagn Khachatryan.
About the film
Through four protagonists aspiring to fulfil their dreams, three contrasting visions of Armenia are sketched out: there is the lift operator in a hospital, a kind of remnant of urban Sovietism, who wants to travel into space; the farmer in search of a perfect wife, revealing a rural social structure that is still dominated by the patriarchy; and finally, the young feminist and queer girls, who simply want to live their lives, enamoured with emancipation and symbolising the infiltration of Western societal changes, which are also bitterly contested on this side of the Ararat.
