Armenian Genocide 101: South Florida Armenians to Feature “The Cut”
As part of a program marking the 101st anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, South Florida’s Armenian Genocide Commemoration, Inc. (AGC), will feature the award-winning film ‘The Cut,’ directed by Fatih Akin.
According to IMDb, “In 1915 a man survives the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire, but loses his family, speech and faith. One night he learns that his twin daughters may be alive, and goes on a quest to find them.”
The film will premiere in South Florida for one night only, on Sunday April 24, 2016 at Cinema Paradiso, 503 SE 6th Street, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33301. Tickets are $15, and are available online at www.101years.eventbrite.com.
Armenians united by the thousands last April, all across the country. But our work is far from done. We must not disband – we must be vigilant in our efforts to educate the world not only about the Genocide but about Armenians in general, particularly with heightened tensions in and around Armenia at this time. This film is going to be particularly poignant for Armenians because it tells the story of the past, of the loss experienced by millions – but also a story of hope, and looking forward into the future. This is the first time ‘The Cut’ has been screened in South Florida. AGC, Inc. is proud to be able to present such a powerful film to the Armenian community on April 24th,” stated Arsine Kaloustian, Florida Armenians Public Affairs Director and Chairwoman of AGC, Inc.
