Join us for a screening of What Will Become of Us, followed by discussion and Q and A with filmmaker Stephanie Ayanian.
100 years ago, Armenians were nearly annihilated by genocide. Today, often unrecognized, it remains defining – while the long shadow of the Genocide creates a burden for young Armenian Americans, discouraging them from taking up their culture. What Will Become of Us follows six Armenian Americans – famous and otherwise – as they navigate the 100th Anniversary of the Genocide and strive to forge identities for the next 100 years. Can Armenian Americans create a new future – honoring their past, while unshackling themselves from its trauma?
This event will be preceded by pizza at 5:45, no registration required. Hosted by Watertown Race Reels Film Series, funded by the Watertown Community Foundation and the WFPL.
