Apo Torosyan presents his documentary film, Voices

The Watertown Free Public Library is hosting the first of several presentations from Filmmaker’s Collaborative on Thursday, May 22nd at 7 PM.

A gripping documentary film of four interviews with survivors of the Armenian and Greek genocide, Voices tells the stunning tale of a million and a half people who were tortured, starved, and murdered by the Turkish government from 1915 to 1923. The presentation will include a question and answer session with director Apo Torosyan. Sponsored by the Filmmakers Collaborative and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

In Voices, Apo interviewed three survivors of the Armenian Genocide and one survivor of the Greek Genocide. These mass murders of innocent civilians between 1915 and 1923 in Turkey claimed the lives of 1.5 million Armenian and 1 million Greek and Assyrian citizens. The Turkish government still has not officially recognized these crimes against humanity.
