We have a really busy and exciting month ahead for “Taniel” with 3 screenings over the pond in the US and Canada. We are first off to the City of Angels for @arpafilmfestival In 2-4 Nov and will be screening in the historic Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. It’s very cool to be back at a festival we really love. Next we will be heading over to the Big Apple and another wonderful US landmark, the Lincoln Center in New York for prestigious @agbuglobal Performing Arts Screening of 6 films on the 16th Nov, before finally taking the short trip to Hogtown (never knew it was nicknamed that) and Toronto, home to the brilliant filmmaker Atom Egoyan, for @pomfilmfest on 17th Nov. Looking forward to the festivals and seeing our friends and supporters before heading back to the big smoke :)

Immortal Dream: The Making of “Taniel”
Quote
It has been a truly wonderful experience sharing “Taniel” with audiences at festivals around the world. Whether it be at Screenplay in Shetland, Bermuda International Film Festival or at Golden Apricot in Armenia, one question we regularly get asked is, Why did we choose the protagonist for the film, our representation of the Armenian Genocide, to be Taniel Varoujan.

Varoujan was a deeply thoughtful poet, and in the film, we do not see him speak but hear his thoughts through his poems and thus the film’s narrative is mostly in poetry. The original Armenian verses are read by wonderfully talented Istanbul actor Yegya Akgun, who is the voice for onscreen star and one of Armenia’s best theatre actors, Tigran Gaboyan, who embodies the poet silently.

It was also important that the film is screened to a global audience. That’s why I wanted a British voice in the film too. We commissioned poetry in English, which was written by Ben Hodgson, telling the story of the film. These verses are the connective glue between each of the scenes. The next challenge was to find the English voice that would have the necessary grit and emotion. In Britain, we are blessed to have so many great actors; I could not have wished to cast anyone more perfect than one of the UK’s most recognized thespians—Sean Bean, the star of Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings to be our film’s narrator. Not only does he have wonderful gravitas thoughtfully delivered with his South Yorkshire accent, but he also understood the pain and beauty of the story and made challenging dark verses his own, with understanding, passion and respect.

Very NICE comments about SEAN !! I'm planning to get this movie on a DVD when it is a available on amazon. My husbands sister is married to
an Armenian and they both love TANIEL'S poetry.
