Hello, My name is Iliana Guevara and I'm the executive producer and camera operator of The Other Side of Home. I am a Latina filmmaker from Los Angeles and I want to tell you about this short doc that we made about identity and the Armenian Genocide. The Other Side of Home was directed by Nare Mkrtchyan and produced by Academy Award-winning producer Rob Fried. Nare is an Armenian filmmaker, whose grandparents were survivors of the Armenian Genocide.
In 1915, Turkey killed 1.5 million Armenians. Still today, Turkey denies it was a genocide.The Other Side of Home explores the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide through the eyes of Maya, a Turkish woman who must grapple with the recent discovery of her Armenian heritage.
I invite you to take a look at our trailer. If you are interested, I can send you the full film to watch.
They say that there aren't many women filmmakers in Hollywood, but here is a team that was composed of many women who brought this film to life. I hope to hear back from you and thank you for your time.
