Synopsis

Exodus in Three Parts is a short experimental film that explores the Armenian identity in its many diasporic complexities. Exodus, the first of the three parts, depicts the historical events of the twentieth century including the Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman Turks in 1915 and the Sovietization of Armenia. This Sovietization would eventually lead to a severe economic crisis at its collapse. The exploration of identity continues into the second part, which alludes to the term Sky Blue—a term used to vilify queerness. The character stands as a resistance to cultural conservatism; submerging in the term and existing within its confines. The last part, Farewell, depicts the personal battle between acceptance and rejection. Through dance, the character embraces the past and looks to the future.
