Armenian Genocide documentary to premiere Thursday in Glendale


A new documentary about the Armenian Genocide will premiere this week in Glendale.

“The Other Side of Home,” directed by Naré Mkrtchyan, follows the journey of an Armenian filmmaker and a Turkish woman whose lives have been defined by the genocide, which began more than 100 years ago, according to a news release.

The premiere will be at 8 p.m. Thursday at MGN Five Star Cinema, 128 N. Maryland Ave. It will run through April 28.

“It was important for us to create a documentary that tells a personal story about how this history-altering event affects us still today,” Mkrtchyan said in a statement. “Making this film, I realized that the sad reality is that genocide does not end the moment the killing stops. The effects actually continue and pass from generation to generation.”

The project was produced by Feeln, a subsidiary of Hallmark Cards.
