Thursday Film Series
From the team that made the SOMM documentaries, Cup of Salvation is a sweeping film that follows a father and daughter as they set out to revive the ancient grapes of their
homeland in Armenia. To do so, they must breathe life into the post-soviet infrastructure of their country, harvest grapes during war, and then market their wine globally. From the battle-scarred Caucus Mountains to the clandestine vineyards hidden deep within the forbidden Iranian countryside, this film unveils the primal origins of our enduring passion for wine and how it continues to shape the very fabric of human existence.
