Plot synopsis
"I would like the film to answer the need for community - to show how people are tied together, sometimes paradoxically" Artour Aristakisian
Palms is Aristakisian's astonishing portrait of people who live on the margins of life and exist outside normal society. Profound, spiritual and hallucinatory, Palms is remarkable at every level and one of the most visionary films of recent years.
Narrated by the director addressing his unborn son, the film is compassionate, revelatory and bold in its originality and was awarded the NIKA (Russian Oscar) for Best Documentary in 1994.
