Mer Dare

USSR, 1983
Length: 47'
Director: Artavazd Pelechian

In no other Pelechian film has the ecstasy over human achievement mingled with the agony of existence in such an intricate fashion. The point is not the establishment of a simple irony, but of an exploration of what makes humanity go on, against all odds. “Our Century is a film about us, about me. It’s about what I’m striving for, what we’re all striving for- every person, humanity. But the wishes and desires of the people to ascend, to trascend, are literally carried out by the cosmonauts” Artavazd Pelechian.
