YEREVAN (Public Radio of Armenia) — President Serzh Sargsyan on March 6 received producers of the documentary “Architects of Denial,” Dean Cain and Montel Williams, and their families.
The President shared his impressions from the film that premiered at Moscow Cinema on March 5, emphasizing its importance in the international recognition and condemnation of genocides, including the Armenian Genocide.
Sargsyan noted that although there is much discussion on the topic in scientific circles, there is a lack of documentaries, and the “Architects of Denial” fills the gap.
“The parallels between today’s reality and the events of 100 years ago are very important,” Serzh Sargsyan said. He pointed to the parallels between the Armenian Genocide and today’s developments in Nagorno Karabakh.
Sargsyan awarded Cain and Williams with Orders of Honor for their contribution to the international recognition of the Armenian Genocide and prevention of genocides and crimes against humanity.
The producers voiced hope that the film would help change perceptions of the issue not only in the US, but also worldwide.
