In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, we dedicate 2015 to an exploration of multiple facets of Armenian culture, history, and landscape through film in our series I Am Armenian.

Once the most celebrated masters of the ancient art of tightrope dancing in Armenia, Zhora and Knyaz—longtime bitter rivals—join forces to train the only student of tightrope dancing left in their country—a 16-year old orphan. Watch their story at The Hammer on Thursday, August 27 at 7:30 PM.
