I AM NOT ALONE
DOC NYC, AFI Fest, Palm Springs, Oxford, Thessaloniki Doc, Hong Kong
An exploration of the 2018 Armenian revolution through the citizen activists who refused to accept it.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
In 2018, Armenia experienced a peaceful revolution that’s inspiring to anyone challenging power. Nikol Pashinyan—a former journalist and political prisoner turned Member of Parliament—begins a march by himself to protest Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan trying to extend the reach of his power. The film observes how Pashinyan’s campaign slowly grows from one person into a mass movement. Briskly paced and offering a balance of perspectives, Garin Hovannisian’s film is a feat of nonfiction storytelling.
