A Man Before His Time: The Unsung Story of Freydun Atouraya
by Assyrian Universal Alliance Foundation.

USA, Chicago — Attend the Chicago premiere of the docu-drama A Man Before His Time: The Unsung Story of Freydun Atouraya. The film chronicles the life of the revered Freydun "the Assyrian," unearthing the remarkable story of a man whose love for his nation was so strong, he would die for it.

In addition to leading a successful military and political career, Atouraya was a respected physician, writer, and thinker. More than anything, he was a revolutionary. His passion for the Assyrian nation was evident in all of his works, and ultimately led to his wrongful arrest, imprisonment, and execution. He died with the unrealized dream of a free Assyria.

Director Henri Charr captures the essence of Atouraya's true character in this riveting account of the life of one man fighting for the future of his people. The film documents the Assyrian struggle for autonomy as they faced annihilation at the hands of the Ottoman Turks and their Kurdish allies during the Assyrian Genocide of 1915.

The docudrama is based on archives from the Soviet Secret Police who were responsible for Atouraya's imprisonment and death. The independent film creates an intimate and personal account of this extraordinary man that would otherwise be lost to history.

Tickets are limited, and the event is open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Doors open at 4:00pm. Show starts at 4:30pm.
