After marrying Mathieu, Anna (of Polish origin) inherited a name which has historical meaning. An Armenian name with Turkish intonations which permitted Garabed, Mathew's grandfather, to escape the 1915 genocide. For their honeymoon they went to Turkey and traced the footsteps of Garabed to learn more about Mathieu's Armenian origins.

A road trip across the country mixing Animation, investigative film and historic documentary to report what the Turks think about the 1915 tragedy... A film about Armenian Genocide and Turkish denial

Filmmaker Mathieu Zeitindjioglou will be present at the screening to discuss and answer questions about the film.
