"Aghet-The Armenian Genocide," dir. Eric Friedler. AGHET incorporates never-before-seen footage and documents -- making it one of the best researched and presented documentaries on the Armenian Genocide.

"Ararat," dir. Atom Egoyan. Filmmaker Edward Sorayan is making a non-documentary movie recounting the 1915 Armenian genocide by the Turks. The filmmakers hire an art historian named Ani, an expert on Gorky's life, as a consultant for the film. Ani is currently having problems in her own family as her stepdaughter Celia accuses her of being the direct cause in the death of Celia's father/Ani's second husband. Celia even resorts to public outbursts to guilt Ani to tell what Celia believes to be the truth about the death. This public disagreement places Ani's son, Raffi, in an awkward position as he is Celia's lover. As filming occurs and the story of the Armenian genocide is told, Raffi travels to the historic Armenia - now Turkey - to discover truths about his cultural past and his family's more immediate past. Upon his return from Turkey, Raffi has problems reentering the country as he is accused of smuggling drugs in the film reel canisters by a customs agent named David, who later realizes that Edward did not do it .
