Amo Bek-Nazaryan – David Bek (1944)

David Bek (died: 1728) was one of the most prominent figures of the Armenian liberation movement against the Safavid and Ottoman occupying forces. In 1722-25 with direct support from Mkhitar Sparapet, he headed the armed struggle of Syunik (particularly from Kapan) and Artsakh Armenians against Safavids, which led to the slaughter and expulsion of Muslims from the Turkic villages of the Kapan and Meghri districts of Eastern Armenia, that were destroyed by him. In 1726-28 Armenians under the leadership of David Bek fought with Ottoman forces, that were attempting to conquer Transcaucasia.

In 1943 (or 1944), “David-Bek” Hamo Beknazarian directed the film with Hrachia Nersisyan starring as David Bek. In 1978 Armenfilm in association with Mosfilm produced another movie about the efforts of David Bek and Mkhitar Sparapet (“Huso astgh – Star of Hope”).
