The planned discussion of "Vahe Oshagan: Between Acts," scheduled for Wednesday, October 7, at 3:00 (ET), has been postponed in light of ongoing developments in Armenia and Artsakh. The co-sponsors and participants believe that the work of culture is extremely important and often under-estimated in Armenian public life and are hopeful that the film and the discussion we hope it will engender will reach a wider audience at a more opportune time in the not-too-distant future. We thank all of those who have registered or planned to attend, and will keep you informed when a new date has been set.
The film can still be viewed here: https://youtu.be/Gp9sHY1hzoo


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. This event will mark the first time this film is being made publicly accessible.

Screen the film first, then join us on Zoom for a panel discussion consisting of filmmaker Hrayr Eulmessekian, Taline Voskeritchian, and 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.
