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.
The River Ran Red is the epic search for survivors of the Armenian genocide of 1915 along the Euphrates River. From his archives of 400 testimonies of survivors and eyewitnesses, the award-winning filmmaker J. Michael Hagopian weaves a compelling story of terrifying intensity, taking the viewer from the highland waters of the river to the burning deserts of Syria. (2008, Dir. J. M. Hagopian, 60 min.)
A Q&A with filmmaker Dr. Carla Garapedian of the Armenian Film Foundation follows the screening.
