    It would be great if you actually tried to make this movie more about what really happened and a dialogue and not a propaganda. Massive genocide? I guess it is because you benefit from having animosities and not from reconciliation and dialogue. Shameful.

    • Not having seen the movie I cannot comment on it. The Armenian and lesser known Greek genocide by the Turks did take place. It is not a “nice” piece of history. Did you see the movie and attend the talk? What was in the movie that was propaganda? Did the talk raise consciousness or did it inspire anger and hate?

      Wishing you the best.
