Watertown, Mass.– On Thursday, May 31, at 7:30 p.m., The Boston Hamazkayin will screen the film, “State on the Last Piece of Land,” at the Armenian Cultural and Educational Center (ACEC), located at 47 Nichols Ave. Watertown, Mass.
The film, which was produced by Armenia’s Yerkir Media, was translated into English and dubbed by the local Hamazkayin Armenian Cultural and Educational Society Boston chapter.
This film presents the tumultuous first two months of Armenia’s statehood in 1918—a period when the newly-created republic faced several political, economic, and social problems. During that time, every effort was exerted—under the most unimaginably difficult circumstances—to ensure the establishment of true democracy in the new state.
Prior to the film’s screening, several documents from the First Republic’s archives, which exhibit the tremendous work of the leadership of short-lived state, will be displayed to the public for the first time.
The event is free and open to the public.
