An enthralling collaboration between Armenian filmmaker and University of Michigan student Oksana Mirzoyan and several Michigan production companies, including Beast Editorial and Ringside Creative. A young boy must go to the store by himself for the first time. When the 140 Drams his mother gave him for milk are not enough, he has to make a difficult choice. His experience becomes a kaleidoscope through which the landscape of a modern Armenia emerges. Through bits and pieces, fragments of conversation and glimpses of a single bedroom apartment, this film tries to put together a picture of this country, right now.
140 Drams made its Chicago Premiere at the Midwest Independent Film Festival in November 2014, earning nominations for Best Short Film, Screenplay, Editor and Director that year. Click below to view this film.
