Village East Cinema: Q&A Friday 11/10 following the 7:00pm show with Director Joe Berlinger


Academy Award nominated director Joe Berlinger embeds himself on the epic film set of Terry George's THE PROMISE to take an unwavering look at the Armenian Genocide. Historians, scholars and filmmakers come together in Berlinger's cinematic exploration of the tangled web of responsibility that has driven a century of denial by the Turkish government and its strategic allies. Berlinger confronts the fraught task of shedding light on the Armenian Genocide - whose witnesses and descendants are still fighting to be officially acknowledged as such by the international community - how it was carried out during World War I as the reign of the Ottoman Empire drew to a close, and how it laid the groundwork for the genocides that followed
