"1915 in Armenian Documents" is a documentary which reveals the history of 1915, when the Ottoman Empire was struggling for its very existence and foes were pressing on all sides. 1915 documents the inhumanity of war and suffering, armed rebellion and the demise of an empire during World War I.
Serkan Koc, who directed the documentary, says 1915 is a factual recounting of events by witness testimony. It is a product of extensive archival research that sheds light on a dark time in history.
Featured testimonies are from: Retired Ambassadors Sukru Elekdag and Nuzhet Kandemir, Professor Justin McCarthy, Professor Norman Stone, Dr. Pat Walsh, Dr. Mehmet Perincek, and former Turkish Historical Society President Professor Yusuf Halacoglu.
The documentary film will be screened for the first time on Saturday, March 5th, 2016 at Cinema Paradiso of Fort Lauderdale.
