Directed by Atom Egoyan
Atom Egoyan explores his Armenian heritage in this
unique drama. A film-within-a-film, Ararat follows a film crew as
they make a movie, also called Ararat, about the 1915 Siege of Van, where
over a million Armenians were killed at the hands of Turkish troops. Using a
non-linear structure, Egoyan tells the horrific story through the film
crew's lens and weaves into it a complex series of subplots involving their
lives, loves and quest for truth. "A triumph" (Los Angeles Times).
