The Lark Farm (La Masseria delle Allodole)
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.
An Armenian family becomes caught up in the Ottoman Turkish government’s annihilation of the Armenian people between 1915 and 1923. This Italian film by brothers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani is adapted from the best-selling novel by Antonia Arslan. (2007, Dir. P. & V. Taviani, 122 min.)
A Q&A with filmmaker Dr. Carla Garapedian of the Armenian Film Foundation and professor Siobhan Nash Marshall follows the screening.
