SCREENING OF MY UNFAMILIAR FATHERLAND DOCUMENTARY AT AGBU YEREVAN CENTER

 

AGBU YP Yerevan and Repat Armenian Fund co-hosted their first joint event on March 15th at the AGBU Yerevan Center. The artistic team behind My Unfamiliar Fatherland presented their documentary followed by a discussion with the standing room only audience consisting mainly of recent repats from around the world. My Unfamiliar Fatherland told the story of the Great Repatriation of 1945-49, the falsified propaganda of the Soviet Union and the enthusiasm of Armenians, who repatriated from around the world, as well as their ultimate disappointment and despair in the difference between their expectations and the reality of their homeland.
