Synopsis

Voyage To Amasia is inspired by Eric V. Hachikian's piano trio of the same name. Amasia, Turkey, is the city from which Eric's grandmother fled during the Aremenian Genocide. The film traces a path through the past, honoring Eric's grandmother and uncovering what her life in Turkey might have been like. It also explores how the events of nearly a century ago continue to strain the relationship between Armenians and Turks today. Inspired by one family's story, the filmmakers’ embark on their own journey in hopes of finding a greater understanding between two peoples still at odds.
