A co-production of five countries (the film cast features renowned actors from Iran, Lithuania, Greece, USA, Russia and Armenia), the movie is based on Tsovinar Khachatryan's short story "Gyurjevan's Last Inhabitant". Masis Baghdasaryan is the co-writer of the script. Music, performed by Hover Chamber Choir and the National Philharmonic Orchestra is written by Serj Tankian. "The Last Inhabitant" was filmed in Khachmach village, Artsakh.
The "The Last Inhabitant's" international promotion started with screening at the Venice Production Bridge of the Venice International Film Festival in Italy. Over the past months, the film was screened in Lebanon, the US, Russia, Iran, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, with new screenings scheduled for the coming future.
To remind, the film depicts the life in an Armenian village, evicted in the result of the Karabakh conflict. Abgar, the main character, stays behind all alone in a gradually shrinking enemy ring. He is waiting for his daughter, who has become a witness to her husband's murder by an angry mob and was hospitalized with a mental disorder. An Azerbaijani named Ibrahim, for finding and bringing Abgar's daughter, suggest that he work on the construction of a mosque. A few days later, Ibrahim finds the girl, named Yurga, in one of the psychiatric hospitals of Baku and brings her to Abgar.
