/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica plans to make a
movie about Armenia and participate in Golden Apricot film festival.

"I was invited to participate in Golden Apricot film festival this
year, but didn't make it. In near future I will catch up on it,"
Serbian filmmaker told a news conference in Yerevan.

Emir Kusturica is currently working on 2 films; in near future,
a collection of 12 autobiographical stories will be ready.

"Visit of Emir Kusturica and "The No Smoking Orchestra" is an important
event in the cultural life of our country. Acclaimed Belgium-based
violinist Khachatur Almazyan is the one we should thank for causing
Emir Kusturica's visit to Armenia," RA Minister of Culture Hasmik
Poghosyan said at news conference.

Today, Emir Kusturica commemorated Armenian Genocide victims in
Tsistsernakabed.

Saturday, March 6 Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan and His Holiness
Catholicos Karekin II will meet with the filmmaker. The meeting will
be followed by visit to the memorial to perished Yugoslavian pilots.

In the evening Emir Kusturica will meet Armenian university students.
