MARY'S TRADITIONAL ARMENIAN JAN GYULUM

In the ancient times, Armenian women participated in a traditional festivity called "Jan Gyulum". Jan Gyulum is also known as Hampartsoum, a celebration of love and enjoyment, which takes place outdoors in the month of May, 40 days after Easter (referred to as Ascension Day). Following Mary and Harut's surprise romantic engagement, instead of a bridal shower, Mary's family organized a Jan Gyulum to celebrate the bride to be.

WE VOW TO KEEP THE PROMISE

As the movie ended, there was a moment of silence followed by an outburst of tears and gasps by the audience… an audience of teenagers, adults, and well Armenians…
