Hamshen Armenian director’s film on Genocide named the best at Montreal Turkish Film Festival

“The wind of memories” – a film on Armenian Gneocide directed by Hamshen Armenian filmmaker Özcan Alper – has been named the best at the 8th Montreal Turkish Film Festival, reports, quoting the Turkish Evrensel daily.

Addressing the festival, Özcan Alper said, in part: “Not everything is lost as long as in this world, where many are homeless and in exile, the audience is still able to face the past together with Aram, one of the heroes of The Wind of Memories.”

“The current developments taking place on the territory of Turkey and in the Middle East are a result of the failure to properly face the events of the past and make conclusions,” the director said.
