40 min.

From Oscar-winning producer Rob Fried and director Nare Mkrtchyan comes a universal story of identity, denial and how the experience of genocide creates a ripple effect for future generations on both sides.

In 1915, an estimated 1.5 million Armenians were killed by the Ottoman Turks during the Armenian Genocide. To this day, Turkey denies it was a genocide. In 2015, a Turkish woman named Maya discovers that her great grandmother was a survivor of the Armenian Genocide. Maya embodies the conflict as she carries two enemies in her: one side that suffers and the other side that denies.

The documentary follows Maya as she travels to Armenia to take part in the 100th commemoration of the Armenian Genocide and explore her conflicted identity. The Other Side of Home provides a poignant reflection on the complexities associated with this harrowing historical period and the aftermath of human atrocities.
