SYNOPSIS

The title Let there be Light is from a poem by the Armenian poet, Paruir Sevak. Sevak visualizes the very strong, almost religious and existential relationship the Armenians have to their biblical, mighty mountain Ararat. A priest cleans after a religious service is over. The mighty mountain Ararat is awakening. The Sun is illuminating the top while a voice reads from Genesis (8:1-17) and peasants work peacefully in the field below Ararat. A piano starts playing a partita by J.S.Bach, while the camera is slowly moving horizontally in a dark room. The camera suddenly starts moving vertically and the scene is cut when the light abruptly flows into the darkness.
