YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Turkey launched a new propaganda campaign on the Internet against the film "Ararat," written and directed by a Armenian-Canadian movie director Atom Egoyan.
A special web site was established–www.ermen’sorunu.gen.tr–which presents the Turkish vision of the Armenian Genocide.
The antagonistic message in the Turkish site raises the question: what is the company trying to accomplish by producing this film–(a film expected to increase tension between the neighboring countries)?
Set against the production of an epic film about the Genocide of 1915–"Ararat" is a contemporary story that deals with the relationship between history in the making and the impact of historical events on people’s lives today.
"Ararat" features Charles Aznavour–Eric Bogosian and other prominent stars and actors.
Miramax Films–an affiliate of the Walt Disney Co.– has acquired the US distribution rights to Ararat.
