Girl From Moush

Canada, 1993 (MIFF 1994, Experimental)

Director: Garine Torossian

A wild mesh of traditional images of the Armenian landscape set against a haunting voice-over of longing, Garine Torossian's almost cubist collage technique edits and disassembles its images with a pulsating hypnotic savvy.
