FEATURE DOCS / MIGRATIONS
Luxury housewares designer Michael Aram goes on an emotional journey with a dramatic conclusion – to create his first major public sculpture. In this film, inspiration & passion arise from both tragedy and light. A short film produced by storyshop, filmmakers of A New Armenia.
While many people know Michael Aram by his luxury home line available in major retailers like Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, and Saks Fifth Avenue, he is also a sculptor, artist, father, and husband. This 6-minute film tells the intimate story of the creation of his first major public work, Migrations, a piece honoring the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. We are there with Michael as he discovers his motivation to create the piece, and we shine a light on his wonderful life – a life afforded by the sacrifices of his ancestors.
