Where are My People?
Hagopian, J. Michael. Armenian Film Foundation.
1965, 28 minutes.
This provocative and absorbing film is far more than a reminder of the recurring fate of vanquished peoples. It is an incisive and significant slice of World War I history. The film is a resounding chronicle of a people, in this case the Armenians, maintaining the continuity of their ancient cultural heritage despite wars, oppressions, and a final attempt at extermination in 1915-1916. In this sense, the Armenian experience is for all nations, an object lesson in courage and survival.
