Send a free ANCA Webfax to Miramax today.

WASHINGTON–The upcoming release of "Ararat," the highly anticipated new film by award-winning writer/director Atom Egoyan–will help educate millions around the world about the Armenian Genocide.

The Turkish government–consistent with its long-standing campaign of genocide denial–has sought to censor this film by pressuring its distributor–Miramax. The film’s world premiere date is set for May of this year.

The community is urged to thank Miramax for providing the widest possible distribution for "Ararat" and for rejecting efforts by the Turkish government to censor this important work of art.
