MOTHERLAND: Film Screening & Discussion with Filmmaker Jesse Soursourian and Activist Mary Matosian
What if healing your country meant that you had to combat traditional gender roles? MOTHERLAND is a short documentary about the women of Artsakh who put themselves at risk to save lives of countless people that use the land to farm, collect wood and attend school.
Individually outcast; together, a collective – the deminers support each other as they take on the dangerous role of breaking stereotypes and securing the future of their war-torn republic.
JESSE SOURSOURIAN is an Armenian-American writer and director based in New York City.
MARY MATOSIAN is the executive director of the Women's Support Center - Yerevan, Armenia, which works to prevent and respond to domestic violence. She will discuss the challenges faced by women in the republics of Armenia and Artsakh
