| Getting personal to see the bigger picture
Faith Akin really likes personal stories. And it shows here, where you have a big part of Armenian history, which isn't talked about much as Sid Haig told me at Convention. But something that is very real for the people and part of their heritage and history, they haven't dealt with that much.

It's also a topic that you won't be likely to see in a Hollywood movie. So this international production helps shed some light on it. By going personal, it makes it more relatable. It also makes it open for discussion if it should be broader and show many more things that went down during that time. You could argue about the ability of most people to talk in English, but that has been done many times and is to make this more accessible worldwide and should not distract you too much from what the movie tries to tell you
