Video | Our Ancestors’ Games (Part 1)

Those of you who spent your childhood playing traditional Armenian games are probably familiar with one or more of the following: "dziv dziv madnotsig", "djor djor", "grag ga", or "hos avazan mu ga".
In fact, these are very old games that we have inherited from our ancestors. They have been preserved by individual families or within the walls of a few educational establishments in places like Beirut, Los Angeles, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Yerevan, Istanbul, Paris, Cairo, and elsewhere.
Houshamadyan presents a short film that explores these historical games – “Our Ancestors’ Games” (Part 1).

The film was prepared and produced by Garine Gokceyan, a regular contributor to Houshamadyan.
For their participation in the preparation of this film, we would like to thank Kourken Papazian, Vartan Estoukian, Krikor Geokdjian, Vahé Tachjian, Tommy Lhomme, Mihran Minasian, Silvina Der-Meguerditchian, Steven Fagerquist, Khachig Kazarian, Sirani, Anahid Sarkisian, Pakrad Estoukian, Serena Babigian-Rozenkjar, Richard Rozenkjar, Kayane Antreasian, Rahel Halladjian-Baboghlian, Hera Nadjarian, and Nayiri, Arman, and Gasia Arslanian.
We would also like to express our special gratitude to the Gulbenkian Foundation, which is the film’s sponsor.
