Screamers opens in Los Angeles movie theaters this weekend. The film
is a documentary feature following System of a Down as they confront
the issue of the Armenian genocide in Turkey in 1915 and efforts by
the Turkish government to deny it.

>From the press release:

Through the band's personal campaign to stop all genocides, Pulitzer
prize-winner Samantha Power, survivors and whistleblowers, the film
traces the Armenian genocide's links to the Holocaust, Rwanda,
Bosnia, the Iraqi Kurds and today's genocide in Darfur. It shows how
successive Presidents and corporate interests have conspired to turn
a blind eye to genocides as they are happening. We say 'never again'
but we don't mean it.

This film is not rated.
