“Not for the faint of heart, “Architects of Denial” nonetheless is a critical piece of documentary cinema that cannot be marred by any resistance.” –Marc Berman, Huffington Post
Architects of Denial is a first person account of genocide through the eyes of survivors. Included are new exclusive interviews with experts who graphically illustrate the real connection between historical ‘denial’ with present day mass exterminations in conflict zones around the world. This film warns that those responsible for genocides who are not brought to justice and confronted with the truth of their crimes, will only set the stage for more worldwide massacres in the future.
This powerful, hard-edged documentary shines light on a genocide the Turkish and United States governments refuse to acknowledge. Featuring shocking denials from present day politicians, Architects of Denial reminds us that history is alive and genocide doesn’t end so long as it’s denied. Attempts to censor this film have stoked controversy, revealing the active efforts of the Turkish government and it’s allies to bury this shameful history.
Directed by David Lee George. USA. English/Armenian/Turkish with English Subtitles. 102 mins. Featuring interviews with Julian Assange, Sibel Edmonds, George Clooney, Gregory Stanton.
