‘Hove’ (The Wind), A Short Film Starring Olympia Dukakis, Released On DVD

The sold-out screening of the Hove at the Montreal World Film Festival

DVD extras include exclusive interview with Ambassador John Evans

“HOVE (THE WIND)” is a short film that tells the story of two modern Armenian women and how there lives are shaken by an unexpected encounter with the past, and the unresolved legacy of the Armenian Genocide. “HOVE” was selected for some of the most prestigious film festivals in the world including the Montreal, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Cleveland and Boston World Film Festivals.

The movie has been released on DVD (available at www.hovethewind.com). “HOVE (THE WIND) has now screened for thousands of people around the globe and I am excited that it is finally available on DVD with some great supporting extra features,” said Alex Webb the Writer/Director.

The DVD will include interviews with Oscar-winning actress Olympia Dukakis, Shirleyann Kaladjian, Alex Webb and former American Ambassador to Armenia, John Evans. The DVD of the short film and extras is available for ten dollars at the website www.hovethewind.com.

“John Evans was so eloquent in speaking about the legacy of the Armenian Genocide and the culture of denial that we are currently struggling with. It was a fascinating interview for me because the film addresses the current day consequences of this hundred year old genocide and here is this career diplomat sitting right in front of me, whose ambassadorship was effectively ended because he took a courageous stand against its denial,” commented Webb.

Olympia Dukakis comments, “HOVE doesn’t ask for sympathy. What it does do is give you the opportunity to feel deeply what the Genocide means in these people’s lives—in all our lives.”
