Recognition is the first step

Looks like a reasonable movie (I like films that have actual events as underpinnings). It covers a subject that's quite often swept under the political expediency carpet, the 1915 Armenian genocide. An horrific act of sustained violence and inhumanity which is still denied by the Turkish government to this day. Hopefully this film will help to shift the zeitgeist ever so slightly towards recognition, which as we all know is the first step in the healing process and an essential component to ensuring events like this don't happen again.
