Araz Artinian is an Armenian/Canadian born filmmaker whose production
 
history consists of a series of documentaries on survivors of the
 
Armenian Genocide and survivors of the 1988 earthquake. Most recently,
 
she collaborated with famous filmmaker Atom Egoyan as the Head
 
Researcher for his film ARARAT. Araz's latest film, "The Genocide In
 
Me", received interest from all over the world and has so far been seen
 
in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, New York, Boston, Philadelphia and
 
Chicago.   
 
Araz Artinian visited Australia by the invitation of the Armenian
 
National Committee of Australia from the 24th November until the 6th
 
December 2005.  On Sunday the 27th of November, we welcomed community
 
members to the premier screening of her film "The Genocide In Me".  Over
 
250 guests filled the AFTRS hall and once the film finished and
 
discussion time began, it was evident that the documentary generated a
 
genuine interest amongst the people.  The documentary raised topics that
 
were relevant to the Sydney Armenian community today and it allowed the
 
audience to openly converse about issues that have affected them.
 
 
Throughout her visit, she met with Hamazkaine Arshak and Sophie Galstaun
 
students, SBS Armenian Radio and Sardarabad Radio to discuss her film.
 
Wherever she went, she received great response and immense appreciation
 
for her documentary "The Genocide In Me".  On the 30th of November, Araz
 
was the special guest at the anniversary cocktail for the ANCA in NSW
 
Parliament House.  There she showed edited highlights of interviews she
 
had conducted with survivors of the Armenian Genocide.  After her
 
Melbourne screening on the 4th of December, Araz returned home where she
 
will continue to produce projects relating to issues of the Armenian
 
Genocide.
