Storyline

Though both the historical and modern-day persecution of Armenians and other Christians is relatively uncovered in the mainstream media and not on the radar of many average Americans, it is a subject that has gotten far more attention in recent years. It was during and after World War I that the Ottoman Empire carried out the systematic mass murder of 1.5 million Christian Armenian citizens, but also 950,000 Greek and 750,000 Assyrian Christians. To this day, the Armenian people are persecuted in the Middle East for their beliefs - and many are kept from their true home. Turkey, which is the successor state to the Ottoman Empire, still denies the extent and the systematic nature of the atrocities and doesn't use the word genocide for these well-documented events. Other governments officially deny the Armenian Genocide as well because of political pressure by their ally Turkey. "Architects of Denial" not only digs into the persecution of Armenians and other Christians in the Middle ...

I live down the street and this was playing this week, so my wife and I saw it this weekend. Having known nothing about the subject before seeing this documentary, I found it extremely informative and makes the clear case that there was an Armenian Genocide, it laid the groundwork for the Jewish holocaust, and now there is a clear effort by US politicians to cover it up and ignore it. It's actually so effective that whenever a congressman is interviewed in the movie and they deny it, it's laughable because we now have been shown the truth and evidence. Julian Assange comes off very well as does George Clooney. Nice shots of an area of the world that people don't typically experience.
