The documentary “Anna German in the hearts of people”, directed by the accomplished Polish documentalist and director, Jadwiga Nowakowska, was premiered on Polish Television on 25 December 2023. Next to the legendary figures of the Polish singing scene, the movie presents some of the lesser known facts from the life of the “White Angel of Polish Song.” Among others, Sar Sargsyan had the honour to pay tribute and show gratitude to the artist whom he holds dear and refers as his Guardian Angel – someone who inspired and guided him along the artistic and private routes: first international concert tour, first Grand Prix, second home (Poland), and many others... A big thank you to Jadwiga Nowakowska for the invitation to be part of this wonderful project.
