Screening: A Story of People in War and Peace

Screening Monday 3rd September, 2007

At a time when Storyville is under threat we celebrate the BBC’s documentary strand on two consecutive days showcasing the world’s most notable independent films made during the last 10 years.

In A Story of  People in War and Peace Vardan Hovhannisyan, ex-soldier who shot close-combat footage during the Karabagh War, tries to find the people he shared a trench with twelve years ago.

Vardan’s intimate conversations with the people he finds raise the ultimate questions about the human cost of war and how it changes one’s life forever. It seeks to find out how they survived the war and how they now survive the peace.
