Join us for the screening of the film Vahe Oshagan: Between Acts, followed by a discussion with filmmaker Hrayr Eulmessekian, Taline Voskeritchian, and Karen Jallatyan.
Vahé Oshagan: Between Acts is a literary biography of the pre-eminent writer and public intellectual of the modern Armenian diaspora. The film infuses the traditional documentary with visual, sound-text, and scholarly interpretations of Oshagan's poetry and prose. It features readings and commentary by Oshagan of his own poetry, as well as analyses by well-known literary critics Krikor Beledian, Krikor Chahinian, and Marc Nichanian; and electronic compositions by Ohannes Salibian.
A panel discussion consisting of filmmaker Hrayr Eulmessekian, Taline Voskeritchian, and Dr. Karen Jallatyan will offer reflections on Oshagan’s work and the challenges of making it accessible—in image, sound, and translated text—to a wide audience.
A reception will take place after the program in the Shahinian Solarium.
