Beyond Paper

At a critical moment in the history of the written word, as humanity’s archives migrate to the cloud, one filmmaker goes on a journey around the globe to better understand how she can preserve her own Romanian and Armenian heritage, as well as our collective memory. 

Blending the intellectual with the poetic, she embarks on a personal quest with universal resonance, navigating the continuum between paper and digital—and reminding us that human knowledge is above all an affair of the soul and the spirit.  

Beyond Paper, Canada, 2022, 130 min, Oana Suteu Khintirian.
Screening in French and other languages (English, Romanian, Italian, Arabic and Spanish) with French subtitles.
