An Armenian Trilogy
Documentary Feature, USA, 2018, 48 min, Color
About the Film
An Armenian Trilogy was created by metro Detroit jingle writer Dan Yessian. The film tracks Dan’s life from budding musician to creator of some of America’s most recognized advertising tunes such as Whirlpool’s “We’re Making Your World a Little Easier” and Dodge Boys “Have More Fun.”
Dan’s life took a dramatic turn in 2014 when he was asked by his church to write a composition to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the murder of 1.5 million Armenians. It continues with Dan’s visit to his ancestral homeland and the triumphant debut of his music performed there by the Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra in 2017.
