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 ...

Amazing, powerful, meticulously well put together.
12 October 2017 | by elias_haddadSee all my reviews

I have always known of the Armenian genocide of 1915, but not the extent of persistent hatred and persecution that they have had to endure for the past 100 years. It is not unimaginable to think that rogue nations such as Turkey or Azerbaijan are able to inflict such persecution without consequence, due to their geo-political and financial relevance to senior western nations.

This documentary does extremely well to show the despair on one side, anger on the other, and provoke the mind into sharing the grief of the unfortunate. A powerful showing that has moved all those I have recommended to see it. Well done Montell and Dean for crafting such a powerful message. I would love to see you apply your talent to message of the Assyrian genocide.
