Documentary: Legacy of Silence
« on: January 16, 2013, 09:29:32 AM »
Legacy of Silence:
Director: Nadia Ambrosi et Patrik Soergel| Producer: Amka Films Productions
Genre: Documentary| Produced In: 2009| Story Teller's Country: Switzerland

Synopsis: Mattia Unal is a young Aramaean with Swiss nationality and the son of a Syriac Orthodox priest in the Aramaean community in Italian-speaking Switzerland. From an early age, his identity has been shaped by the use of the Aramaic language and religion. Mattia’s awareness of his origins is, however, limited to what he has learned from his parents, who fled from their country to Switzerland in the early 1980s. Mattia and his father decide therefore to go on a journey, visiting the land of their family: Tur Abdin, “Mountain of the Servants of God”. The Legacy of Silence offers a personal view of the lives of Aramaean people, in the Diaspora and in their homeland, in the present and the past, in both the younger and the older generations, creating a picture of how an ethnic and religious minority in Turkey has lived and continues to live on today.

i saw this one when one of the syriac posters put up the link to it, it was awesome.
this reminds me to pray for the people in the documentary.
they were very inspiring.
may God give them peace and courage to keep shining God's light around them.
Lord have mercy.

mabsoota, it is confusing :) It kinda means Syriacdom. Mshiho = Christ, Mshihoyutho = Christendom.

CoptoGeek, rather, thank you for watching it and then caring to share it.
