Brave 3D animation film hits theaters in the United States on Friday, June 22. The producer of the film is Armenian Katherine Sarafian.
According to the plot, determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.
According to Katherine Sarafian, while working on the film she understood how alike she was with her father – a priest of the Armenian Church.
“Faith can't not to play a role in your life. I looked a lot at my father, a priest in the Armenian Church, who was not great at managing people. He was a heart-based leader, while my mom was a businesswoman. I thought I was more like my mom, more of the business-style leader,” Kathrin told The Christian Post.
She considers that the idea of the film derives from her own life.
“When you can reconcile who you are with what's expected of you and learn to trust the love of your family … that's brave. When you realize, 'I'm still me and I can still love my family and be a member of my community, just maybe not in the way that people would expect' … That's brave,” she said.
