ARCHITECTS OF DENIAL Opens Nationwide as Top Grossing Documentary
The film ARCHITECTS OF DENIAL, Genocide Denied Is Genocide Continued, executive produced by Dean Cain and Montel Williams opened this past weekend in select movie theatres in 10 major cities nationwide as the top grossing new documentary. Craig Sussman, who is overseeing worldwide distribution for the film commented, "The producers are thrilled with the Opening Weekend results for the film, which exceeded expectations. These results bolster our enthusiasm for our concurrent digital release and DVD which is currently available through Amazon."
ARCHITECTS OF DENIAL, Genocide Denied Is Genocide Continued, a new documentary film from executive producers Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The Adventures of Superman) and Montel Williams (The Montel Williams Show) is about the Armenian Genocide of 1915. The film opened Friday, October 6, 2017 in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Minneapolis and Denver. Based on last weekend's strong performance, the film has been added for an extended play at Arena Cinelounge Sunset (Los Angeles), opening Friday, October 13th, 6464 Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, CA 90028.
In spite of forces trying to thwart the film's marketing campaign, the film still managed to make an impact ranking Number 30 as one of the top films of the week. The film has been a four-year labor of love to show the horror of genocide, and in particular, the Armenian Genocide. The film's producers feel ARCHITECTS OF DENIAL unites Americans in a humanitarian campaign represented in the film by those who support the recognition of the genocide from WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief Julian Assange to actor George Clooney.
ARCHITECTS OF DENIAL. Genocide Denied Is Genocide Continued traces the turbulent modern history of the Armenian people, from their decimation by Ottoman Turks at the onset of World War I until the present, when they are threatened by Turkey, as well as its ally, Azerbaijan. It chronicles the Armenian Genocide of 1915 and includes interviews with its survivors, who detail the horrors they or their family members had experienced, and experts, who graphically illustrate the real connection between its historical denial with present-day mass exterminations in conflict zones around the world.
