“ARARAT“ is a 2002 Canadian-French drama historical film written and directed by Atom Egoyan and starring Charles Aznavour, Christopher Plummer, David Alpay, ArsinÃ©e Khanjian, Eric Bogosian, Bruce Greenwood and Elias Koteas.
A film within a film, this is a contemporary story of the making of a historical epic about the Armenian Genocide between 1915 and 1918. Filmmaker Edward Sorayan is making a non-documentary movie recounting the 1915 Armenian Genocide. This movie will be controversial if only because of the denial by the Turkish government that the genocide even exists. Regardless, Sorayan plans on using what he considers real life events and people as the basis for the movie.
