The podcast series “The Lost Voice: Aurora Mardiganian” is an investigation into what happened to the Armenian genocide survivor who became a film star, Aurora Mardiganian. The podcast recounts her story, Hollywood exploitation, her resilience, and reflects on how the movie, which broke box office records in America, is now officially a “lost film.” It also delves into the UK's position on the Armenian Genocide, by speaking with Tim Loughton, MP, who has been fighting for recognition in the country.
Join us at the Armenian Institute to discover this work and meet its creator, Maxim Saakyan, who will tell us more about the process of making the podcast and the importance of archiving. Conversation and debate about the important questions it raises will be encouraged.
