NAASR press release on April 25 screening at NAASR of new documentary by Apo Torosyan. Two photos are attached for your possible use.
The National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) will present Massachusetts-based filmmaker and artist Apo Torosyan’s new film Voices in a special screening in commemoration of the victims and in tribute to the survivors of the Armenian Genocide on Wednesday, April 25, at 8:00 p.m., at the NAASR Center, 395 Concord Ave., Belmont, MA. This will be the first full-length showing of the film in the Boston area.

Torosyan will be present at the screening and will offer comments and answer questions following the 40-minute film.

Voices includes interviews with three Armenian survivors and one Greek survivor of the expulsion and annihilation of the Armenian, Greek, and Assyrian communities of Asia Minor. The interviews were conducted in 2006 with 106-year-old Yeghsapet Giragosian, 94-year-old Luther Eskijian, 105-year-old Hovhannes Madzharyan, and 88-year-old Sossos Delis.

Apo Torosyan was born in Istanbul, Turkey, to Armenian and Greek parents. He holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Istanbul’s Academy of Fine Arts. His previous films include Water, The Gates, Witnesses, and Discovering My Father’s Village: Edincik. He is an active member of the Boston Printmakers and the International Association of Genocide Scholars.

Torosyan has had many solo and group art shows all over the U.S. and Europe, and his work has appeared in private and corporate collections in Turkey, Greece, Spain, France, Armenia, Canada, and the U.S. One of his works, “My Father’s Letter,” 1991, was selected by the Museum of Modern Art at Tonneins, Bordeaux, France, for its permanent collection. His “Bread Series” is also in the permanent collection of the Armenian Library and Museum of America in Watertown, MA, and the Flaten Art Museum in Northfield, MN.

The NAASR Bookstore will open at 7:30 p.m. the night of the screening and all of Torosyan’s DVDs will be on sale. Admission to the event is free (donations appreciated).

The NAASR Center and Headquarters is located opposite the First Armenian Church and next to the U.S. Post Office. Ample parking is available around the building and in adjacent areas. The screening will begin promptly at 8:00 p.m.
