Trip in Armenia - Video Shooting and Recordings
Kaya prepares a trip in Armenia in order to direct videos for her songs in armenian. She wants to take back contact with her roots as a young woman, emancipated from her family, and share the trip with her friends for work and creation. She wrote two songs, Ov em Ies? that means Who am I? And Marymer that signifies Our Mother. The first song is a depiction of the quest of identity in the diasporas all around the world. For the video, Kaya thought about filming Armenians in their daily crafts, artists, farmers, etc, in a documentary feeling, to make a tribute to this millennial culture and those who take care of it with great passion. Being very moved by the situation in the high Kharabagh, she also desires to shoot in the azerian borders, searching for witnesses and story to tell so no one forgets. The second titles Mayrmer is much more poetic, it talks about love, connexion to the nature and others beings, to the elements, to God, our Mother in the skies, making the traditional Hayrmer, Our Father, feminine, which is the most famous armenian and christian prayer. For this video she imagined to shoot the ancestral temples that are still present in Armenia, the mountains, the churches, the lake Sevan. Both songs include a tail in French, so the French audience can understand her intentions.
