Taviani brothers’ film to be screened at Berlin festival


YEREVAN (YERKIR) - Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s film "Masseria delle Allodole" (Skylark’s Farm) shot on the basis of Antonia Arslan’s novel will be screened at the 57th festival film in Berlin (Germany) on February 8, 2007, independent journalist Jean Eckian told PanARMENIAN.Net.

This film tells about the Armenians Genocide through the story of a family which lives in Western Armenia and awaits the arrival of their parents from Italy.

Alas, the First World War prevents this family from joining and the family members fall victims to the genocide perpetrated by the Turks. This film with total budget of 9,7M € ($9M) is a co-product by Italy, Spain, Belgium, France and Eurimages
