Long before the Holocaust, the first genocide of the 20th century occurred in the former Ottoman Empire (now Turkey). Beginning in 1915, at least 1 million Armenians perished while the world did nothing. Screamers explores why genocides continue to occur in modern day history and features the rock band System Of A Down, whose families include Armenian Genocide survivors, as well as people involved with genocides in Rwanda and Darfur. Screamers also examines genocide denial in current-day Turkey, and the neutral trend that the United States generally holds towards genocide. 100 Years Later looks at the progress being made on the ground, exploring a subject that just 10 years ago was so taboo that you could be prosecuted for mentioning it. Filmmaker(s) and other invited guests will be here for engaging Q+A.  FREE EVENT.
