This 70-minute documentary film produced by Vem Media Arts pays tribute to
Armenian pilgrims over the last 2000 years, who have contributed to the
preservation of spiritual traditions and Christian legacy in the Holy Land.
The film presents the stories the pilgrims brought with them and the imprint
they left in some of the holiest places of Christianity. It follows the
paths taken by Armenian pilgrims as they travelled between two focal points
in history: from Mt. Ararat to Mt. Zion, from A to Z. Striking scenes of the
Church of Holy Sepulchre by night, the colourful spectacles of Easter in
Jerusalem, the Ceremony of Holy Light, Mount Sinai in Egypt, the Monasteries
of the Judean Desert, and the summit of Mount Ararat provide exquisite
visual tapestries on every level of the story.
