1612) Don't Tell Anyone Yet:"Genocide" Documentary, Voices Istanbul Premiere

A new Genocide documentary, Voices, will premiere in Istanbul (but don't tell anyone just yet)

Artist and filmmaker Apo Torosyan recently completed a new 40-minute documentary Voices, in which he interviews three survivors of the Armenian Genocide (the oldest being 107), and one survivor of the Pontic Greek genocide.

In April, Voices will be premiered at IHD, the Human Rights Organization in Istanbul, Turkey. Istanbul is Torosyan's native city, but the artist, who now resides in the United States, considers it dangerous to return there since he has made several documentaries about the Armenian Genocide. . .

According to Torosyan, the specific date and venue for the IHD premier of Voices will not be announced until shortly before the event, in the hope that this will circumvent disruptions by Istanbul's nationalist elements.

Torosyan broached the subject during a January radio interview on New York's "Radio Greece," alongside Ragip Zarakolu, the Turkish publisher of (among other works) the Turkish edition of Peter Balakian's The Burning Tigris. Zarakolu, who has faced severe harassment, legal and otherwise, for publishing such books, discussed the possibility of growing danger to those who speak about the Genocide within Turkey, in the immediate aftermath of the Hrant Dink assassination.
