On April 2, Paris’s AGBU Youth presented the film “Le Fils du Marchand d’Olives” (The Son of the Olive Merchant) in honor of the 96th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide at the Alex Manoogian Cultural Center in Paris.

The presentation was followed by a discussion with Mathieu and Anna Zeitindjioglu, the film’s director and his wife.

The film tells the story of Mathieu and Anna and their honeymoon in Turkey, where they travel to inquire about Garabed, Mathieu’s Armenian grandfather who had escaped the 1915 Armenian Genocide. The historical documentary is the record of a road trip through the country, marked by meetings with people, vignettes of animation, and other moments of investigation, to help illustrate a Turkish vision of the 1915 tragedy.
