In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, we dedicate 2015 to an exploration of multiple facets of Armenian culture, history, and landscape through film in our series I Am Armenian.
A photographer traveling in Armenia for a calendar project realizes that his wife, an Armenian translator, is falling in love with their driver and unofficial tour guide. The Academy Award–nominated director Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter) reveals the unraveling of a marriage through a series of flash-forwards. (1993, Dir. A. Egoyan, 74 min.)
A Q&A with filmmaker Dr. Carla Garapedian of the Armenian Film Foundation and Robert Lantos, producer of Ararat, follows the screening.
