Dir. Peter Odabashian (US, 2015, 90 min)
Old Friends is a bittersweet portrayal of trauma, depression, falling in love, getting older, and finding happiness. With no additional crew, Peter Odabashian visits sixteen of his longtime friends who reveal surprising truths to his camera about the paths they chose in life. As we hear their stories, we begin to understand how they helped make Odabashian, the child of Armenian genocide survivors, the “happiest depressed person in the world.” Old Friends is a film of unusual intimacy. It is a loving portrait of kindred spirits, their pain, their joy, and what matters in life.
Screening followed by Q+A with director.
