In the shadow of World War I, The Golden Chain of Mercy unveils a poignant story of survival and compassion that transcends borders. The Ottoman Empire on the verge of collapse and under the guise of war commits a genocide to erase the country’s ethnic minorities – Armenians, Greeks, Assyrians, from history. Amidst this darkness, a glimmer of hope emerges through the sacrifice of ANZAC unit fighters, alongside the benevolent citizens of Australia and New Zealand who came to their aid.

This ground-breaking documentary tells the story of survivors and is a tribute to the unsung heroes and missionaries who stretched ‘the Golden Chain of Mercy’ ring after ring across the globe, a testament to humanity’s unwavering resolve to uphold justice and kindness in the face of unimaginable adversity.

Content warning: Archival footage of deceased persons.

This screening is in partnership with the Armenian Missionary Association of Australia. The film pays tribute to the kindness and generosity of unsung heroes including missionaries of the evangelical churches, known today as the Uniting Church of Australia.
