Armenian animated film “Aurora’s Sunrise” will premiere in the feature-length competition at Annecy Festival this coming June in France, the National Cinema Center of Armenia informed.

“After seven long years in production, we are honored as filmmakers for our docudrama about Aurora Mardiganian—an extraordinary woman, an Armenian Genocide survivor who selflessly chose to relive her trauma all over again to help fellow survivors & expose its atrocities to the world as it was happening—make its international debut at the most prestigious animated film festival in the world,” the National Cinema Center of Armenia added.
