In 301 A.D., Armenia became the first nation to adopt Christianity. Commemorating this anniversary 1,700 years later, The Armenians: A Story of Survival, tells the tale of these fascinating and tenacious people. This compelling documentary explores the journey and struggle of the Armenian people from their humble beginnings near the Middle East through their Christian conversion in 301, their near elimination during the first Genocide of the 20th century to the birth of the Armenian nation.

Shot in twelve countries and narrated by Academy Award® Winner Olympia Dukakis, The film includes interviews with Nobel Prize laureate Elie Wiesel, author Dr. Robert J. Lifton (The Nazi Doctors), the Head of the Armenian Church, Catholicos Karekin II, and the President of Armenia Robert Kocharian. That along with never before seen footage of the Armenians in 1915 and Soviet Armenia makes this documentary a momentus piece on Armenian history.
