Editorial Reviews

Documentarian Carla Garapedian traces the history of modern-day genocide - and genocide denial – from the fertile "Holy Mountains" of Anatolia to the current atrocities in Darfur. The documentary is as shattering as it is powerful, which includes live performance footage and interviews with System of a Down, the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning rock band, all of whose members are of Armenian descent. The film is laced with seven of the band's songs from "Holy Mountains" to "P.L.U.C.K." to the #1 hit "B.Y.O.B." that illuminate the band's views on political and social issues

Garapedian (the acclaimed director/producer of such documentaries as "Lifting the Veil," and "Children of the Secret State") weaves an intricate tapestry of historical footage, current day interviews of survivors who witnessed the Ottoman Turks genocide against those of Armenian decent in 1915, their relatives, concert footage, and even footage of a confronted Dennis Hastert in the Capital Rotunda! Garapedian's documentary shows without ambivalence that until we truly recognize our past, our history is doomed to repeat itself.

Format: DVD
I have seen this movie on starz, I regret to say that I was not lucky enough to have watched it while the screening took place. This documentary follows the one and only System Of A Down, throughout several locations from LA to Europe, while diggin deep in history and showing the truth about the forgotten genocide. This movie includes interviews with experts and some of the survivors of the genocide. This sad story of human history also follows the massacre that took place in africa during 2004 while the whole world stood watching, idle in the face of massive death. To conclude this, several SOAD fans won't be dissapointed by the extensive repertoire of songs played throughout the film. I'm glad I'm finally getting the DVD after a long wait, I hope you feel the same way.

Listening to Serj Tankian's grandfather recount the utterly horrific way his family was destroyed during the Armenian Genocide when he a little boy will keep you awake at night. And well it should. Watching Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert blow Serj off in the White House rotunda, as only a fatuous career politician can, will disgust you. And well it should. Buy two copies of this DVD - donate one to your local public library and make sure they put it on the shelf! Order a Spiral into Flames pendant - the proceeds go to making sure this DVD ends up in school libraries. If you have the time or the means, get involved any way you can to help stop genocide cold.

Funny thing. This DVD is scheduled for release in the US and Canada on June 26. The Amazon Canada site is clear and definite about the details, but the Amazon US site has obscured all concrete info. "Release date to be announced: The release date for this DVD has not been finalized." Check out the different announcements. Why the disparity? Which is it?

Great movie for fans of System of a Down. Better yet, this is a great movie documenting genocide in general, and the Armenian genocide in particular. I highly recommend this movie. It is a must see. Share the movie with friends, family, and members of your local community. Everyone will thank you for it. Very eye-opening experience.

I saw this film @ webster place in chicago. It only played for one week. It was an amazing film that if anything might have pulled a couple punches. I applaud Garapedian and the boys of SOAD for exhibiting such an amazing piece of work. However, I am a bit worried about the state of this dvd. It had a release date scheduled in June. Now it is September and I can only fear someone's political, historical "beliefs" are to blame. It is past the point of "hey the dvd had some technical issues". There are probubly boxes of this dvd sitting in warehouse and all I wanna do is pop it in my home theatre and blast some of those amazing live concert scenes. And most importantly, there are people that need to see this film and I can't show it to them if I don't have a copy. MMMMMphhh.....frustrating.

I have been waiting to purchase this movie ever since it came out at the film festivals. I, being from Florida, have never been to an independent film festival but heard about this movie from System Of A Downs website. This gives a look at mainly the genocide of the Armenians by the Turks but also looks into the other genocides which have happened to which are happening right now. this movie gives accurate information about the subject but if you aren't into System Of A Downs music you will be forced to sit through their performances. After I recieved this movie in the mail I watched it with a bunch of class mates. This film makes an excellent discussion piece among young adults.

One of the best documentaries out there which clearly depicts the horrific massacre of 1.5 million Armenians during the years of 1913 to 1923 by the Ottoman Turks. The movie proves that without recognizing previous genocides it is hard to prevent future genocides. besides the Armenians Genocide, the movie also concentrates on the Genocide in Darfur; furthermore, strengthening the need to recognize and help people suffering. The movie is a must-see. i recommand it to everybody.

In this turbulent time when the Turkish politicians are influencing the Israeli government and the most powerful Jewish organizations in the U.S. in attempt to convince the U.S. government not to recognize one of the horrors of the 20th century, this video is one of the most powerful weapons in the hands of the honest people. The shame must fall on the heads of those who put politics before human life! The shame must fall on the MS NBC with their disgustingly bias "vote". This video is for those who want to know the truth about Armenian Genocide.
