Abstract:

""Destination Watertown ; The Armenians of Hood Rubber" is a documentary film on the Hood Rubber Company, which employed many immigrants, especially Armenians, whose community evolved in the shadow of the factory's giant smokestack. The plant opened in Watertown, Massachusetts in 1896, attracting Armenian immigrants, refugees from the Abdul Hamid massacres and the 1915 Genocide. B.F. Goodrich took over the company in 1929, through the depression and World War II, and it closed in 1969. The film contains interviews with stories and reflections of former employees of Armenian descent and East Watertown Residents, interspersed with personal and historic photographs, maps, documents, artifacts, and images of remnants of the old factory, once the largest of its kind in the world. Workers recount life on the conveyer belt, piecework, and exposure to chemicals, yet considered themselves fortunate to have a job. For East Watertown residents, Hood Rubber was their neighborhood. THey fondly remember the famous "sneaker test", whereby the durability of the product was demonstrated through the daily activites of local kids. Most importantly, this factory was the impetus for the estabilshment of the Armenian community of Watertown"--Container.
