Post Balakian to Present New Works, Kazans America, America in NY

NEW YORKOn Friday evening, April 8, award-winning author and poet Peter Balakian will lead a discussion in honor of the Armenian Genocide commemoration from his new book of essays and poetry, Ozone Journal, and will discuss Elia Kazans Oscar-winning film, America, America, at the Eastern Diocese in an event hosted by its development department.

Balakians new publications include insightful passages and references to Armenian history and literary culture. In Vise and Shadows: Essays on the Lyric Imagination, Poetry, Art and Culture, he dedicates five separate essays to artist Arshile Gorky, writers Yeghishe Charents and Siamanto, and filmmaker Elia Kazan.

Ozone Journal contains a sequence of poems, including one focusing on the authors memories of excavating the bones of Armenian Genocide victims in the Syrian desert with a crew of television journalists for the news program 60 Minutes in 2009.

The second half of the program will feature a partial film screening of renowned director Elia Kazans America, “America, which portrayed the Armenian massacres for the first time on the Hollywood screen. Kazans 1963 Oscar-winning film has been called one of the most daring human rights films in cinema history. Kazan scholar and film critic Foster Hirsch has called it an American masterpiece. Kazan himself singled out America, America as his favorite film.

America, America is Kazan’s groundbreaking film that brought the plight of the Armenians and Greeks in Turkey to the big screen, said Balakian, who is the Donald M. and Constance H. Rebar Professor of the Humanities, Professor of English, and director of Creative Writing at Colgate University. It is time the film is understood for what it is about.

Balakian is the author of seven books of poems and three books, including The Burning Tigris: The Armenian Genocide and Americas Response, which won the 2005 Raphael Lemkin Prize and was a New York Times Notable Book and a New York Times and national bestseller. His memoir,Black Dog of Fate, won the 1998 PEN/Martha Albrand Prize for the Art of the Memoir; was a best book of the year for the New York Times, the LA Times, and Publishers Weekly; and was recently issued in a 10th anniversary edition.

The event is free and open to the public. It begins at 7 p.m. in the Guild Hall of the Diocese of the Armenian Church of America (Eastern), located at 630 Second Ave. in New York. A reception will follow the discussion and book signing.
