Reviving the sunken memory of Armenians in Turkey, post-genocide.

Beyond a simple personal quest and far from a nostalgic narration by an Armenian lacking roots, Back to Sölöz is a journey through multiple layers. Filmed over the course of four trips and thirty-three years, from 1987 to 2019, the film addresses the history of the village of Sölöz, not far from Boursa, in Turkey: the deportation of the Armenian people who lived there, including the filmmaker's grandfather; exchanges of populations and the settlement of Balkan Muslims in Sölöz; shared histories of lost ancestral lands and exile; the near-erasure of the history of Armenians in Sölöz and in all of Turkey; and a dialogue on possible Armenian-Turkish reconciliation that engages historical truths and identity. Back to Sölöz is a living encounter between two peoples marked by blood, on the spot of one of the greatest human tragedies of the twentieth century. From Palme d'Or award-winning director Serge Avédikian.
