CONTINUITY AND RUPTURE

Film Screening:

"Watchers of the Sky"

WATCHERS OF THE SKY

The Sundance award winning WATCHERS OF THE SKY interweaves four stories of remarkable courage, compassion, and determination, while setting out to uncover the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin – the man who created the word “genocide,” and believed the law could protect the world from mass atrocities. Inspired by Samantha Power’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, "A Problem From Hell", WATCHERS OF THE SKY takes you on a provocative journey from Nuremberg to The Hague, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action. More info at www.watchersofthesky.com

After screening the film, we'll be joined by Watchers Of The Sky's producer Amelia Green-Dove who will share insight into the film's making, its importance and participate in a Q&A.

Winner of Sundance Jury prize for Animation and the Sundance Award for Editing.

CONTINUITY AND RUPTURE: AN ARMENIAN FAMILY ODYSSEY
March 24 – April 27, 2018


Continuity and Rupture: An Armenian Family Odyssey traces the lives of the Dildilian family through the last decades of the Ottoman Empire and the violent eradication of Armenians from their homeland in the 1915 genocide. Drawing upon the family archive consisting of thousands of photographs, glass negatives, drawings, artwork, documents, letters, and family heirlooms, this exhibition provides a unique glimpse at history through the lens of one Armenian family.

This exhibition has been made possible by the generous support of the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research, Antranik Zorayan, Ararat-Eskijian Museum, Harry Parsekian, Hamazkayin - Armenian Cultural and Educational Society, Armenian Museum of America, Project SAVE Armenian Photograph Archives, The Armenian Center at Columbia University, Southern Connecticut State University and Glendale Library Arts & Culture Department.

The exhibition is FREE and open to the public.
