THE SON OF THE OLIVE MERCHANT
In Search of the Armenian Genocide
For their honeymoon, Anna and Mathieu traveled to Turkey with their camera in hand to learn about Mathieu’s Armenian heritage and to learn what modern day Turks think about the Armenian Genocide that occurred in 1915. Sadly, Turkey denies the Genocide for a variety of reasons including that the crimes was actually committed by Armenians against the Turks. Using footage from their trip mixed with interviews, news footage, historical documents and animation, this documentary emerges into one of the most powerful films ever made about the Armenian Genocide.
