Albert Mkrtchyan

Director

Albert Mkrtchyan (1937-2018) was a decorated Armenian filmmaker and brother of famous actor Frunzik Mkrtchyan. This fame followed a tragic childhood in which their father was interned in a labour camp for a decade. To make sense of this difficult childhood, and his parent’s own trauma, Mkrtchyan made deeply autobiographical films which delved into Armenian culture and memory, such as Tango of our Childhood (1986)
