And Other Objects

March 2023

And Other Objects is a short film project that tries to digitally reconstruct the Surp Garabed Monastery based on the narratives of the historian Khorenatsi Movses, who was born and raised in Muş in the 5th century. The Monastery was built during the period of Movses' historiography, 

Khorenatsi returns to Mus after completing his education in Alexandria with a group of students. The problems experienced in the construction process of the monastery cause him to question his own historiography.
