The Yezidi community is considered mysterious and even among the Yezidis, few people know about the personalities who promote the Yezidi identity through their activities.

Today, the Cultural Center of the Caucasus Yezidis will tell you about the actor Yezid Yuri Mgoyan.

Yuri Mgoyan, the actor who played the main role in Sergei Parajanov's famous film “Ashik-Kerib” (1988), it is believed that this director was the first who decided to shoot Yezidi in the main role in the USSR. The Yazidi actor also starred in the films "Confession" (1990), "Parajanov: The Last Spring" (1992), “Tunnel“ (1993).

I would like to tell you a little about the plot of the film "Ashik-Kerib".

"Ashik-Kerib" — an adaptation of the Azerbaijani fairy tale of the same name, known to us in the version of Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov. Poor ashug (singer-poet) Ashik-Kerib from Tiflis sets out to wander in search of recognition and wealth to pay the kalym to the father of his beloved Magul-Megeri and take her as his wife.

Ashik-Kerib vows to wander for seven years and become rich or die.

The rival steals Ashik-Kerib's clothes. Other characters think that Ashik-Kerib drowned. Ashik-kerib's mother loses her sight from crying tears. His rival is increasingly aggressively seeking the hand of Magul-Mageri.

A poor musician gets to the sultan and sings to him about his love. The Sultan really likes this song, and he gives Ashik-Kerib gold. He has been living in prosperity for seven years and has almost forgotten about his fiancee. But, after one wonderful meeting...".

There is very little information about Yuri Mgoyan, it is unknown where and when the actor was born, where he lives today. One thing is for sure, the fact that, Yezidi, Yuri Mgoyan got the main role from such a Great director as Parajanov already says a lot.
