Finding Armenia

A film by Nubar Alexanian

When your family’s brutal past is denied, how do you make sense of the present?

Finding Armenia is the result of that question. Without even fully understanding where their ancestral “Armenia” was, Nubar and Abby set out on a journey to understand their shared history.

Finding Armenia will provide a timely and thought-provoking personal account of what it means to be Armenian today, and how Armenians’ identity and moral place in the world has been profoundly changed.
