Bon Voyage
Բարի թռիչք

An observational documentary with an ironic edge, Bon Voyage grounds the viewer in the daily life and routines of a small provincial airport where all is not as it seems. The control room runs its checks, the director files his paperwork, the cleaners scrub the floor. But there are no flights or passengers to be seen: the airport is unable to function for fear of missile strikes from neighbouring Azerbaijan. Garegin Papoyan’s feature debut explores the absurdities of life in Nagorno-Karabakh with deft simplicity, painting a portrait of a tight-knot community dreaming of a normality that is endlessly deferred.

Screening as part of our season Spaces and Places: Exploring Identities in Armenian Film
