"When I read the script for the first time, I immediately agreed to work on this film. It did not appear in the finals, but I think it went a long and important way and I felt that it will have such a great destiny. In general, you can do anything in Armenia, you don't need to connect all your dreams only with the outside world, and this historical event is the proof of my words", says Arman Nshanyan, the producer of the film, in a conversation with STYLE.

The final 5 films that will compete in the category are: "The Teachers’ Lounge,” Germany, “Io Capitano,” Italy, “Perfect Days,” Japan, “Society of the Snow,” Spain and “The Zone of Interest,” United Kingdom.

The movie "Amerikatsi" tells the story of Charlie, an Armenian man, who miraculously survived the Genocide and immigrated to the United States, but his family, unfortunately, were killed in that crime. The story begins in 1947, when Charlie returns to Armenia and faces the harsh reality called Soviet Communism.
