Artists For Kids presents LORIK, an Armenian language film by Michael Poghosyan.

The film’s protagonist is actor Lorik, Laurence Olivier’s namesake.

When Lorik was a child, he lost his parents, who also were actors. Raised by his aunt, Lorik realizes his childhood dream and becomes an actor, but he lives in the imaginary world of his roles. He is now Cyrano de Bergerac, then King Richard. However, the main role he plays is not performed on the stage but in the conduct of his own life: the Rabbit from ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ Lorik does not perceive today’s realities and is afraid of being himself, so he hides behind the masks of his characters. He is indifferent to the opinions of others and lives only through the feelings of his characters.

Society, meanwhile, worries about completely different issues. Social inequality, the crisis of the confidence in authorities, and a sense of hopelessness are increasing in the society.

When the theatre is closed by an owner indifferent to the fate of its actors, it seems to Lorik that, with the absence of the theater and his roles, his life is over. But actually his real life is just beginning. After the shock, something strange happens to Lorik. Is this a dream or a delusion? Lorik begins to be transformed externally into other people and has to live episodes from their lives, all the while remaining the same Lorik internally. Those life episodes are not easy; they are real tests. Through them Lorik learns to understand and feel the happiness and pain of others as his own and to experience love. Thus the rebirth of his soul begins.
