Atom Egoyan, director, writer (Miramax Films, 2002) Atom Egoyan's thought-provoking film compels us to experience the toxicity of genocide and the ways it continues to cast shadows on the lives of Armenians and others years after its bloody unfolding. Its harrowing aftershocks animate a movie maker, an art history professor, a confused young Armenian, and a screenplay writer as they explore what it means to them. Their ideas and ideals are tested by others who have no connection with the genocide but who serve as catalysts to their struggle to come to terms with what happened so long ago. Laurence Baron (California State University, San Diego) will introduce the film and lead a discussion afterward.
