World-known film director, actor and musician Emir Kusturica will perform in Armenia today with the “No Smoking Orchestra” in a concert organized within the framework of the events dedicated to the Armenian Genocide Centennial.
Earlier today he visited the Armenian Genocide Museum Institute to pay tribute to the memory of the 1.5 million victims.
Speaking to reporters today, Kusturica referred to the similarities and differences of the Armenian and Serbian peoples and expressed his opinion about the geopolitical events.
The Serbian director said he’s happy to return to a country, which is very much like his homeland. The difference, he said, is that the Armenian nation, which has survived genocide, is united and has clear demands, while the Serbian history is different, Serbians are seen as criminals, not victims.
