ARM | 2020 | dir. Garegin Papoyan

Garegin Papoyan captures the absurd ironies of a community defined by frozen military conflict in this wry observational documentary. Fully equipped to accommodate civilian flights, the recently rebuilt Stepanakert Airport in the break-away Republic of Artsakh does not operate due to the permanent threat of missile strikes. Unwilling to risk any lives, the airport, nevertheless, remains “open”. The dreary ritual of keeping the standby facility operational turns the workers into a closely-knit family unit, where each individual lives out their personal dreams while continuing to hope for the basic freedoms to cross borders and receive guests.
