Jagadakeer: Between the Near and East

Jagadakeer is an Armenian word meaning fate, or literally, what is written on one's forehead. Memory, nostalgia, displacement, absence and reconnection are explored using the Armenian genocide as a point of reference and a visual/aural backeams op. Nuance and gesture are accentuated by stories and sounds, which take us backwards to the past and forward to the future simultaneously. These stops and starts form a complex series of transitions to revisit both real and imagined sites to evoke a sense of homeland, a lost and enigmatic landscape.

Reviews
"This elegiac film poem views the Armenian genocide of nearly a century ago through an intentionally murky lens as an event just out of our reach, poignantly illustrating the impermanence of memory."
- Mark Fox, SF Intl. Film Festival
