Please join us Saturday, March 14th at the Jack and Julie Maxian Armenian Centre to meet Amber Rose Kandarian – Filmmaker, artist and first female Armenian DJ! Amber is making the trip from Los Angeles to work on some exciting projects, which include documentaries focused around Art Basel. Amber will discuss her story and highlight her ‘Sexy Knowledge’ platform.
Amber Rose Kandarian’s mission in life has been to make knowledge more sexy. This mission led her to produce and release a feature length documentary at the age of 21 into theaters in the US and Australia (a documentary about the sacrifices documentarians make to shift the culture and enlighten us about what is really going on in the world). The guerrilla marketing successes and release of this film gave her the opportunity to speak and educate as a lecturer at high schools and universities in the US and overseas. Kandarian later landed the position of chief editor at TVNZ’s (TV New Zealand) show The Rookie and Saturday Disney during her global travels. Kandarian was then invited to work on a feature documentary for the BBC in her motherland Armenia where she soon became Armenia’s first female professional DJ.
After touring the globe as an American Armenian female pioneer in the disc-jockey world, Kandarian ventured into the secret world of mega yachts. She worked as a first mate and chef to learn the secrets of the most successful people in the world and to raise capital for her next endeavor DocuThesis.com, DOCUinc.com and SexyKnowledge.com.
While living on the yachts and the powerful and influential Kandarian came to be frustrated by the reclusive and arid manner in which our society isolates knowledge and academics. Convinced that the documentary lens could make true knowledge sexy and attractive to popular culture, Kandarian’s mission is to get DocuThesis (documentary + thesis) into every research institution to assist in scholarships and the support of academia by translating the best thesis from universities into bit size pieces of knowledge the public can understand, learn from and use to better the communities we live in and improve the quality of life for all of humanity.
Let’s get together and show our support for this accomplished, exceptional Armenian woman! RSVP to Ramela Ouzounian – firstname.lastname@example.org or Raffi Maxian – email@example.com
