April 7: Lost Birds (2015)
Discussant: Ela Alyamac & Aren Perdeci (Co-Directors)
The Co-Directors are traveling from Istanbul Turkey to discuss their film.

Lost Birds presents a historical tragedy that takes place in 1915, from the point of view of two children. The story is about Bedo, played by (Heros Agopyan) and Maryam, played by (Dila Uluca), whose beautiful, warm, and happy lives in Anatolia comes to an end when their grandfather played by ( Sarkis Acemoglu) is taken away by soldiers. Out of extreme fear, their mother, played by (Takuhi Bahar), forbid the children to go outside, but being children, they sneak out to their favorite spot to play, only to come back to an empty home and an empty village. Their fear takes over, and with their bird that they had saved, they embark on a journey toward Aleppo to find their mother, and their fellow villagers. This beautiful film made by an Armenian and a Turkish filmmaker with passion is a cinematographic beauty to watch. Lost Birds is the first film made in Turkey to depict the 1915 Armenian genocide. In Turkish and Armenian with English subtitles, 90 minutes

Sponsor: The Armenian Studies Program
