YEREVAN (armradio) — “Anahit” animation film based on the homonymous fairy tale by Gazaros Aghayan is now available on the web.

The film is a traditional cartoon combined with 3D computer graphics. The leading idea of the fairy tale is kept: a skillful beauty Anahit teaches the king Vachagan Armenian traditional handicrafts – handweaving. Eventually, a wise king should not only reign, but also be able to make handicrafts, build and create, as well as love. Slogan: “Today you are a king, but who knows what comes tomorrow…”.

As any other folk tale “Ahahit” is based on the eternal struggle of good and evil. Here the baddies are Azar, Vachagan’s uncle and his servant Enver. Among the heroes there is a mad and vulnerable magician Petros, a horse Andok born from a magical spring, a faithful dog Zangi, as well as mentors of the protagonists: quaint Shushan and guru Serob. All dialogues are in verse.

The “Anahit” cartoon characters are voiced by Nazeni Hovhannisyan, Khoren Levonyan, Raphael Kotanjyan, Shushan Petrosyan, Hrant Tokhatyan, David Babayan, Mkrtich Arzumanyan, Vardan Zadoyan. The songs are performed by Shushan Petrosyan, Inga Arshakyan, Anush Arshakyan, Tigran Petrosyan, Gor Sujyan, Nik Egibyan, Hasmik Karapetyan, as well as “Akunk” folk ensemble.

“Robert Sahakyants” Production created the first Armenian full-length animation film. The project was supported by the Armenian Ministry of Culture and the Sharm Holding.

“Anahit” is a family film.
