Join the Turkey-Armenia group for their film screening and post-film discussion! They will be screening a film by Nigol Bezjian called “I Left My Shoes in Istanbul.” The film closely follows a Lebanese Armenian poet, embodied by Sako Arian, who embarks onto a journey that has been delayed for a century to his ancestral city of Istanbul, where his cultural and literally roots are found. Sako tours the old streets of Istanbul once populated by Armenians, the ancient cemeteries and the poets buried in them, the old churches and more than a century old high school. He meets the young and the old, the famed and the humble, Armenians and Turks, listens to their stories, their opinions, he laughs and shares food with them.
