Although Armenia regularly produces outstanding film directors, Armenian cinematography is practically unknown in Europe. Four German cinemas in Berlin, Frankfurt, Halle (Saale) and Stuttgart hosted the Armenian Film Days, the first German retrospective of Armenian filmmaking. The programme featured some of the major themes in Armenian cinematography, such as the scars of genocide, exile and emigration, and Armenia's connections to Europe and European (cultural) history. The film programme was accompanied by audience discussions.
