Larry King Calls Screamers ‘Brilliant. A Film Everyone Should See’

LOS ANGELES–Larry King has declared the film "Screamers"–now playing in select cities nationwide in the US–a must-see. "It’s a brilliant film," said King. "Everyone should see it." The film features the Grammy award-winning band System of a Down and exposes the denial of genocide in the last century, from the Armenian genocide, the Holocaust, Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda — right up to the genocide unfolding now in Darfur. King’s statement follows Monday’s special screening at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, hosted by "Screamers" contributor Samantha Power, Pulitzer prize-winning author of A Problem from Hell, America and the Age of Genocide. The School’s Starr auditorium was packed out by students, System of a Down fans and journalists alike — as well as a special appearance by Henry Morgenthau III, gran’son of the US Ambassador who was a "screamer" during the Armenian genocide. "Screamers" is a frontal assault on US foreign policy in the face of genocide — identifying the hypocrisy of successive Presidents lip-service to the idea of ‘never again.’Two days after Congressmen’saw a special screening in the Library of Congress, one of the contributors in the film, Hrant Dink, was brutally murdered in Turkey — for the very beliefs he expressed in the film. The film opens in Boston and Chicago February 9, following New York and Washington. DC openings on January 26 and is supported by Save Darfur and Jewish WorldWatch. "With a genocide going on now in Darfur, it’s vital that we send a message out now to our politicians that we must do everything we can to stop genocide now," said Carla Garapedian, the director of "Screamers."
