BELMONT, Mass. — A new film by renowned director Artak Avetyan will examine Armenia Tree Project’s remarkable efforts to reforest the country and mission to use trees to improve the standard of living of its residents.
The English language version of “Antar” will premiere on Wednesday, December 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) in Belmont, Massachusetts.
