Artavazd Achotovitch Peleshian

Born in 1938 in Leninakan, Armenia. Lives and works in Moscow.
Artavazd A. Peleshian studied cinema at the VGIK (Cinematic Institute of Moscow)
in the 1960s. It was not until later in his career that his films were
recognized abroad, thanks to French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard who became his
first and most ardent supporter. Today considered as one of the most important
filmmakers of our time, he received the Scam Prize for Television for his whole
work in 2000.
Inventor of an experimental "un-editing" technique, Peleshian threw aside the
conventional rules of cinematography with his own contrapuntal editing.
"Confronted with two important shots, the carriers of meaning, I do not try to
bring them together, nor to confront them, but rather to create a distance
between them..." Through this contrapuntal editing process, Peleshian creates
an original circular type of film radically renewing the art of cinema.

Television" ist, und warum Peleshian ausgerechnet den gewonnen hat, statt der
Palmen, Löwen und Bären, die ihm zustünden, wissen wir allerdings auch nicht.
