At the “Crows of the Desert” film screening in Dublin, Ireland
Last week, on March 9, the documentary film, “Crows of the Desert -A Hero’s Journey through the Armenian Genocide” played in Dublin, Ireland. The screening was part of The Silk Road International Film Festival.
The festival played selected films throughout small theaters in the Temple Bar area of Dublin.
Levon Parian, the grandson and editor of the book, his wife Maro and daughter Sona arrived to see the film presented
“Such a fascinating location.’ Crows’ was shown in the back of a little bookstore in the middle of this cultural mecca in the heart of the old city of Dublin. Armenian-Irish well-wishers made us feel right at home opening their homes and hearts to us. We even visited a Genocide Memorial -walking distance from the theatre,” said Parian.
The film will be screened in Palm Spring in April
Last year, this award winning documentary inspired Supervisors Han and Barger to proclaim the month of April as “Armenian History Month.” The film is going to be shown in two more festivals in the near future. Two showings at the Sebastopol (Calif.) Documentary Film Festival are scheduled for Saturday March 24 at 4:45 p.m. and Sunday March 25 at 12:30 p.m. at the Rialto Cinemas, 6868 McKinely Street.
