Artur Aristakisyan - Palms (Ladoni)
Palms is Aristakisyan’s astonishing portrait of people who live on the
margins of life and exist outside normal society. Profound, spiritual
and hallucinatory, Palms is remarkable at every level and one of the
most visionary films of recent years.
Narrated by the director addressing his unborn son, the film is
compassionate, revelatory and bold in its originality and was awarded
the NIKA (Russian Oscar) for Best Documentary in 1994.
