Emmy-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Peter Musurlian traveled to what is now eastern Turkey in 2013 along with 25 other Armenian-Americans. His documentary “Historic Armenia” shows remnants of an ancient civilization systemically destroyed over the past 100 years, telegram.com reports.
The film will be shown at the Worcester Public Library Sept. 22 during a commemoration sponsored by the Knights of Vartan Arshavir Lodge No. 2 and Daughters Of Vartan Santoukht Otyag No. 5 in honor of the 24th anniversary of the Republic of Armenia’s independence. The program also includes a proclamation on behalf of the City of Worcester from Mayor Joseph M. Petty; a presentation of books and videos to the library’s Knights Of Vartan Collection; and a reception with refreshments.
