“THE MAP OF SALVATION” WAS SHOWN AT YSU
On November 8, the screening of the film “The Map of Salvation” took place in YSU Cultural Center Hall.

The film was shown at YSU for the first time in cooperation with YSU Cultural Center Cinema Club and National Cinema Center of Armenia.


Manvel Saribekyan, producer of the film, script writer Anna Sargsyan, representative of Armenian National Cinema Center Ashot Hambardzumyan were also present.


The film “The Map of Salvation” was shot in 2015. The shooting was carried out in nine countries. So far the film has been shown in 31 cities in 14 countries. It is mainly based on real facts that have been provided by national archives of different countries, museums, and acquired from personal archives.


“I am glad that the film is also shown in this format. Making a film about Genocide is a difficult thing. It is difficult not only in psychological sense. This topic implies much more, it is much more difficult than the main task that any filmmaker puts forward,” - says Anna Sargsyan.




The author of the script also notes that the main task of filmmakers is to create an interesting film, but it is a double problem to do it on genocide.


The film tells about five European women - Karen Yeppe, missionary Maria Hagensen, Bodil Bjorn, Alma Johansson and Anna Hedvig Bülu - their devotion to the Armenian people. Leaving their prosperous life, they come and support the Armenian people, helping and sparing their lives, trying to save the orphaned children.


Their events of the past are represented by the historian, genocide expert Sveente Lundgren.


Immediately after watching the film, students had a chance to discuss it with the creative team.
