Directed by Garin Hovannisian and produced by System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian, I AM NOT ALONE is a captivating documentary that recounts the incredible velvet revolution that took place in Armenia last year. RESIN, on the other hand, is gorgeously filmed dark thriller premiering in Contemporary World Cinema and directed by Daniel Joseph Borgman, one of Europe’s most exciting up-and-coming directors.
On Easter 2018, a man put on a backpack and began to walk across Armenia. His mission: to inspire a velvet revolution and topple the corrupt regime that enjoys absolute power in his post-soviet nation. With total access to all key players, I AM NOT ALONE tells the miraculous true story of what happened in the next 40 days.

Liv, a precocious thirteen-year-old, lives deep in the forest with her simple-minded father Jens and her obese, bedridden mother Maria. Sheltered from the outside world, the family survives on what they can find in nature. Here, even the smallest things have a soul, and great meaning can be found in the journey of an ant into the sap of tree roots. What Liv doesn’t know is that her parents have a dark secret; they have made the outside world believe that she is dead in an attempt to escape society’s norms and demands. Liv’s curiosity propels her to venture into the world, and suddenly, their reclusive existence is threatened by increasing interference from the outside.
