Award Winning Documentary: Back to Sölöz
Journey Back to Soloz, when a French filmmaker who is of Armenian origin returns to the village of his grandparents in Turkey.
The Armenian genocide occurred a little over a century ago, but had huge ramifications for Armenians and the impact is still felt today.
This award winning documentary gives us an inside look at the history, but also insight into the present.
The film wasn’t rushed, but has been in the works for decades.
Serge Avedikian traveled to Soloz four times between 1987 and 2019, learning more each time.
He combines the family history he knew with his own experiences to create a moving and informative documentary about the people and culture impacted by the very significant events of the past.
Release Date 11/9/21
Beyond a simple personal quest, the film is part of a journey through multiple layers of the history of the village of Sölöz, which is not far from Boursa, in Turkey.
There is the deportation of the Armenian people who lived there, the exchanges of populations, the settlement of Balkan Muslims in this village and a dialogue of possible Armenian-Turkish reconciliation.
