Storyline

In 2015, exactly 100 years after the Armenian Genocide, a theatre director (Simon) is staging a play at the Los Angeles Theatre to honor the victims of that tragedy -- a horrifying crime forgotten and denied for an entire century. But as protesters surround his theatre, and a series of mysterious accidents spread panic among his actors, we realize that Simon's mission is more controversial than we think -- and the ghosts of the past are everywhere.

The 100 year survival -- a truly need for justice
19 April 2015 | by Heghine GrigoryanSee all my reviews

I'm thankful to the whole team of "1915 The Movie" film. The film examines, not only the land where 2 millions Armenians lived 100 years ago, but also the state of soul/mind of today's Armenians as well as the psychological influence of 100 years survival (the dramatic change). The film is breathtaking, which shows the complete essence of Armenian people the importance of facing your real truth, the fight for justice in our souls; even though, we sometimes deny it in order to not feel the pain of our nation. The BEST PART of this film is the deep passion, not only of the filmmaker, but of the whole team of 1915--this makes film beautiful with its psychologically tragic elements.Another BEST PART of the film is the element about the truly need of justice. Thank you for this important MOVING STORY FILM, THE 1915 THE MOVIE
