Join explorer Steven Sim and producer Ani Hovannisian-Kevorkian for a rare dig beneath the surface of modern-day Turkey, as they team up for a live presentation and special preview of the documentary, “The Hidden Map.”
As Hovannisian was traveling through Turkey to discover the vanishing traces of her ancestral homeland a few years ago, she stumbled upon the Scottish explorer who, she learned, had already been documenting the relics of Historic Armenia for 30 years.
The unexpected intersection of the Scotsman’s and Armenian’s journeys merged into a joint expedition, with Sim continuing to uncover what lies beneath the modern map of Turkey, and Hovannisian documenting his discoveries along with her own, bringing to life the silent and spoken testimony of the land.
This is a rare opportunity to meet Sim in person and preview Hovannisian’s documentary, and to have a lively exchange with both.
