Representation matters. It allows us a glimpse into the world of possibilities and rescues us from societal erasure. It's difficult to put into words how it felt to see actors on the big screen either speaking Armenian or telling the story of our ancestors who survived the Genocide... never did it cross my mind that the queer Armenian experience would also make it to the silver screen one day.
Filmmaker Natalie Shirinian tells the story of her own coming out to her Armenian mother, in her new short film Parev Mama.
