BRUSSELS—On the initiative of the European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy, the Brussels premiere of “The Last Inhabitant’’—an award winning film about Artsakh—took place. The screening took place at Cinéma Galeries in Brussels, Belgium on Friday, July 12. Director Jivan Avetisyan was in attendance. At the end of the film, audience members actively shared their impressions and addressed questions to the director.

“The language of art is very important in order to tell the story of the struggle of Artsakh people for their freedom to the world, in this case to the European public. We are glad that talented directors such as Jivan Avetisian work on the topic and participate in prestigious international film festivals,” stated EAFJD President, Kaspar Karampetian.
