Artavazd Peleshian, born in 1938, is an Armenian filmmaker. USSR: Minsk Film Studio, 1970. About Inhabitants, Peleshian said: “Many people were offended or insulted by We. After that experience, I was mad at mankind and decided to make a film about animals. Animals don’t get upset, but at the same time, by focusing on them, I could say the same things as I was saying about people” (“Arthur Peleshian,” Scott MacDonald, A Critical Cinema: Interviews with Independent Filmmakers, University of California Press, 1998, p. 97).
