Documentarian, Aida Schlaepfer’s ‘Souls in Transit‘ About the Assyrian Genocide of 1915 Makes Its World Premiere at Cinema Village in New York, NY, on Friday, September 30, 2022.

Born into a Muslim family, to an Iraqi father and a Lebanese mother, Aida Schlaepfer shines a light on a tragic and ignored period in Western Civilization being the Assyrian Genocide of 1915. Only in recent years have the Armenians been recognized with the loss of their 1.5 million ancestors, but the Assyrians have continued to be forgotten. Add to that of Greeks living in the Ottoman Empire at the time and the numbers of the Christian Genocide extend well beyond 3.5 million.

Schlaepfer short documentary ‘NouN‘ in 2015 introduces the world to the Assyrio-Babylonian indigenous population of Iraq and Syria as they suffered under ISIS. For those that are unfamiliar with the letter ‘NouN’ in Arabic, it is the Arabic ‘N’ and used as an abbreviation for the word, ‘Nazarian’ a term that Muslim use to call Christians in the region.

You can watch the short documentary ‘NouN‘ for free on YouTube by click the video below:

Souls in Transit‘ has Schlaepfer return to Iraq as only survivor in her family following the most recent Iraq War…the fact that we have to refer to it as, “the most recent” should be spinetingling.

Schlaepfer does not divide the 1915 Genocide based on ethnicities or denominations but discusses the suffering of all Christians within the Fertile Crescent, whether Assyrian, Chaldean, Syriac or Armenian.

I spoke with Schlaepfer shortly after she landed in New York City, NY following her overnight flight from Switzerland to discuss ‘Souls in Transit‘, her interest in the Christian communities of her homeland and the stuffering they continue to endure in Iraq and Syria.

Souls in Transit‘ Makes Its World Premiere at Cinema Village in New York, NY, on Friday, September 30, 2022 and runs until October 6, 2022. Showings will be from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

Cinema Village
22 E 12th St,
New York, NY 10003
