Yerevan - Although The Desert of Forbidden Art by Amanda Pope and Tchavdar Georgiev did not win any award in Thessaloniki Film Festival held March 11-20, it was undoubtedly one of the most vivid documentaries presented. (The documentary also premiered on America's Public Broadcasting Service on April 4. - Ed.)
Vivid not only in terms of depicted environment and characters, cinematographically perfect shots and editing, but also in the way of presentation of a unique cultural and political phenomenon in broader historical context.
