“Digging Into the Future – Armenia” documentary to screen in CA

PanARMENIAN.Net - Emmy award winning director Joseph Rosendo will screen “Digging Into the Future – Armenia” at Ararat-Eskijian Museum-Sheen Chapel, Mission Hills CA, on Friday, June 6, Massis Post reported.

The documentary is an archeological expedition to Armenia. It turns viewers on to the thrill of discovery while making genuine human connections with a people’s past and the present.

Host Joseph Rosendo explains, “We chose Armenia as the first in the series, as few Americans are aware of Armenia’s rich history and do not know of its beautiful landscape. The beauty, the cuisine, the drinks, and most importantly, the spirit of the people is very impressive. It was exciting to be in a country which has survived and overcome so many challenges.”

For this adventure Rosendo joins archaeologists from UCLA’s Cotsen Institute, which is dedicated to the creation, dissemination, and conservation of archaeological knowledge and heritage.

“I think the film will be interesting to many who like to explore new countries. Armenia is a fantastic country, a wonderful place with an interesting history, tasty food and beautiful people. In the film we put a special emphasis on the rich cultural heritage and history, not forgetting to mention about the Armenian Genocide,” said Charles Stanish, Director of the Institute.

Travelscope’s Emmy-award winning director Joseph Rosendo has been a travel, food and wine journalist and a travel broadcaster for more than 30 years. Since 2007, he has hosted, directed and written Joseph Rosendo’s Travelscope, the award-winning PBS travel television series.
