Tigran is the name of a new documentary film in French, directed by Adrian Rivollier, about Armenian pianist/composer Tigran Hamasyan. The film follows him around the relative stillness of Armenia, to Los Angeles; the recording studio and live gigs, and shows his many influences: from Thelonious Monk to Rachmaninoff.
The fifty-two minute film will be shown is the first of its kind to be dedicated to Hamasyan, will be shown on French television (Mezzo, and Lyon Capitale TV), screened at festivals and available on DVD. As we learned when we went to the screening of Zicocratie, 52 minutes is the length required for a documentary to get TV exposure in France.
