The Dildilians: A Story of Photography and Survival

Event - #11 Family Survivors 1922 Photo

Virtual Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Film Synopsis

During the 19th and early 20th centuries a remarkable family of Armenian photographers, the Dildilians, captured a time and a way of life in Anatolia in central Turkey that was soon to disappear during the Armenian Genocide of 1915. This documentary, which is the product of a unique collaboration between filmmaker Catherine Masud, Dildilian family historian Armen Marsoobian, and a talented group of University of Connecticut students, tells the story of that lost community through the voices of family descendants, supplemented by historical photographs and documents from the family archive. To request reasonable accommodations  for people with disabilities and for any other questions regarding the event, please contact global@uconn.edu.
