FRESNO—The CineCulture Series and the Armenian Studies Program at California State University, Fresno, are sponsoring a special screening of the film “If Only Everyone” at 5:30pm on Friday, November 4, in the Leon and Pete Peters Educational Auditorium (west end of the SaveMart Center, near Shaw and Woodrow Aves.), on the Fresno State University campus.
“If Only Everyone” is dedicated to the 20th anniversary of Armenia’s independence and the formation of the Armenian Armed Forces. The film is about a woman, Sasha, who is half-Armenian, half-Russian, and a daughter of a freedom fighter who was killed in the Artsakh liberation war.
Twenty years later, Sasha comes to Armenia in search of her father’s grave, where she wants to plant a birch tree. Sasha becomes acquainted with her father’s combat friends, who help her carry out her mission.
“If Only Everyone” is a film by Nataliya Belyauskene and was selected as the Armenian entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards.
Armenian Studies Program Director Professor Barlow Der Mugrdechian will be the discussant after the showing of the film.
Admission is free and the event is open to the public. Free parking is available at any of the adjacent Fresno State parking lots (near the corner of Shaw and Woodrow Avenues).
