Artavazd Peleshian, born in 1938, is an Armenian filmmaker.  We was produced by the Yerevan Film Studio and released in 1969 in the USSR.  About the film, Peleshian said: “If I had meant only the Armenian people, I would not have had the guts to call it We.  The Armenian people are a ‘we’ that is just a piece of the larger ‘We'” (“Arthur Peleshian,” Scott MacDonald, A Critical Cinema 3: Interviews with Independent Filmmakers, University of California Press, 1998, p. 97).
