Grandma's Tattoos

A filmmaker makes a journey into her own family’s history to investigate the terrible truth behind her grandmother’s odd tattoos and, in the process, unveils the story of the Armenian women driven out of Ottoman Turkey during the First World War.
The film was screened prime-time on Al Jazeera from January 11 – 18th. (Thank you 517design for the link to the film in HD).
