The New York Times just published a good review of “Here”, a new American independent film that was mostly filmed in Armenia, and has some Armenian dialogue. If I’m not mistaken, this is a first. It is also introducing Armenia’s landscapes to the world, and those landscapes get a glowing report card. The NYT writes, “There are vistas in Braden King’s metaphysical road movie, “Here,” that are so beautiful you want to step through the screen and disappear into the Armenian landscape where much of it was filmed. ” That’s the first line of the review!
If you want to see this limited release, the show dates and locations can be found here (no pun intended), and the trailer can be seen here. It opens in NYC on April 13, LA on April 27 and SF on May 11.
