Artist Spotlight Stories | Nora Martirosyan and her film “Should the Wind Drop” (2020)
Virtual participants will be able to join for the Q/A part with the film director at 7:45 PM, after the in-person screening of the film.

In this film, Martirosyan takes us on a journey to discover Nagorno-Karabakh, its timeless scenery, and its inhabitants who fight daily for the recognition of their state. Through the Western perspective of her main character, portrayed by Grégoire Colin, Martirosyan allows the viewer to discover this territory which has its own capital, president, and constitution, despite not being recognized at a legal and geopolitical level.

Alain, an international auditor, arrives to assess the airport of a small self-proclaimed republic in the Caucasus in order to give the green light for its reopening. Edgar, a local boy, runs his own peculiar small business outside the airport. After interacting with the child and other residents, Alain is able to discover this isolated land and will risk everything to allow the country to open up.

Martirosyan has directed several award-winning short films and her feature film “Should the wind drop” is the first Armenian film in the official selection of Cannes film festival since 1965.
