"Houses Without Doors" a film by Avo Kaprealian and produced by Bidayyat wins The Best International Documentary Award at the 34th Torino Film Festival, Italy.
the filmmaker dedicated This award is to real artists everywhere, who are struggling worldwide, against the big powers that is playing with the History... This award is for Aleppo which is bleeding in her mothers' hug, Syria... And this award is also, for me, a little step towards the justice that is a dream for Armenians who are fighting for 100 years to not forget... Armenians had a famous slogan said "never again" regarding the Genocide, but unfortunately we lived it, saw it, felt it again and again, in different ways, as different nations, in Syria, Iraq and Palestine...!
Word of the jury:
Out of an impossible situation, he shows what is impossible to show - from the balcony of his family's home he looks at the whole world. He makes us feel that Syrian and Armenian people are all humanity and makes us trust in the tools of cinema to help humanity to exist and resist in all times. The Best International Documentary Award goes to Houses without Doors by Avo Kaprealyan
