My Son Shall Be Armenian - DVD

Top of page

Exploring the question of Armenian identiy, My Son Shall Be Armenian follows the initiatory voyage of filmmaker Hagop Goudsouzian, who, accompanied by five Montreal men and women of Armenian origin, returned to the land of his ancestors in search of survivors of the genocide of 1915. Through the moving testimony of those centenarians and the funny and touching accounts of his fellow travellers from the New World, Hagop Goudsouzian has crafted a dignified and poignant film on the need to make peace with the past in order to turn toward the future.

Supplements: Photos from the film and musical excerpt by Ararat Petrossian. DVD of 2004 original.
