LOS ANGELES—PBS SoCal Plus will broadcast a half hour documentary “Tumo: Change Starts within Armenia” on August 2 at 6 p.m. pacific time. Tumo Center For Creative Technologies was established in Armenia to introduce alternative careers to teenagers in order to help change the socioeconomic situation and ultimately leapfrog the country from the consequences of its succession from the Soviet Union.
Given a technology savvy platform and the right tools, a new generation of Armenians uses creativity to map their future with hopes to compete in the global marketplace from within a landlocked country.
PBS SoCal Plus is on Charter 314, Cox 810, Time Warner 235, and Verizon Fios 470 and Channel 50.2 over the air.
The short documentary film is directed by Vahe Babaian and produced by Bérj Beramian, made as a Zealpix production.
