About ATCP

We are people from Turkey and Armenia whose common ground is cinema. We love cinema. Not only do we love cinema, we also believe in the power of cinema to heal, reconcile and make peace. We believe that cinema can help us say things we were not able to for decades, and help us get to know one another. Not only do we believe, we also act on it!

The Oud Maker

The Oud Maker is about the spirit of the master and the life of his disciple bound by this ancient tradition of oud making. The documentary tells the story of Onnig Karibyan through the eyes of Cengiz Usta, his lifelong disciple, exploring the deep musical traditions and legacies of Armenian and Turkish music that has evolved out of the braided and painful history of the 20th century in the Ottoman empire and the Armenian Genocide of 1915. It is being directed by director Eric Nazarian.
