WITH MILENA VARTANYAN
SPECIAL THANKS TO
HÉLÈNE TCHEN CARDENAS
Inspired by the Soviet movie «ACCA» 1987, I wanted to create a series showing the eternal conflict of power and love.
This resistance is an archetypal feature of the whole post- soviet generation I belong to. Yet, this story is very personal. Very personal to every woman, I believe.
Unconscious choices and life under pressure of others’ expectations, socials norms and imposed roles.
But one day we feel the desire to become who we truly are and we rebel against our fathers, our husbands, our family, our environment. We separate.
We sacrifice our home, understanding and support of our families, we take a painful risk and we leave. Face to face with our fears, doubts, sense of rejection and solitude.
