    • Synopsis
    • WE EXIST
      There are two million Armenians currently living in Western Armenia which is the northeast part of modern Turkey. They are forced to hide their roots and true identity.
      The film tells about a large Armenian family living in Istanbul. Passing a long way family members each year return to their grandfather’s house in the village Nich of the historical province Sasun which is on the territory of present-day Turkey.
      They say: “In any case we will not leave our native land. Here we were born and here we would like to die,” although it is not always possible to live in peace and during their constant battle there are victims from among the family members.
      This is a story in which the events of the Armenian Genocide of 1915 are still continued. People are again subjected to deportations and annihilation, violence is continued even up to date, is linked to our reality.
      The film continues the series of the images revealed in the film "We Exist" Those images are the living custodians of the Armenian Genocide’s history.
