Purification (Poetic Documentary)

“Purification” is a full length poetic documentary film (non of the shots is staged) the shootings of which started in 2007 and took place in more than 10 countries.
The film is about humanity, existence, history and the future. People invented technologies, that made our life comfortable, joyful, but when the rapacity dominates man, the technological development and creativity become harmful for humanity and nature, questioning people’s future existence. It’s a film-alert from one side, to make people rethink about our priorities and beliefs, and a solution from another side, from the imagination of the author.
Stage: Late Production
 Produced and directed by: Seg Kirakossian
