A film of striking beauty and mystery on the first Armenian Expedition to reach the summit of Mount Ararat, the presumed resting place of Noah's Ark. Where many have failed and some even lost their lives, Masis and Gregory Parseghian and Hamlet Nersesian succeeded. Overcoming the hardships of incarceration, altitudes, they accompanied their goal through sheer will and perseverance. The film became a reality after four shipments of film were smuggled out of Turkey over a two year period. Ararat Beckons is more than a film of adventure. It is a poetic statement of the historic bond between a mountain and a people, a father and son. Aghuri, the ancient lost Armenian village on the northwest slope of Ararat, is discovered by the climbers and featured in Ararat Beckons."
