Armenia, 1993
Length: 7'
Director: Artavazd Pelechian

In Life, Pelechian uses colour for the first time, perhaps to enhance the already optimistic tone of the film, and makes his shortest work till date. Running for a mere seven minute time span, Peleshian, for most part of the film, presents us extreme close-ups of a woman delivering a baby. Probably the most moving Peleshian film, Life is also the most overt manifestation of the ever-present Peleshian-ian conversation between human pain and ecstasy.
