Movie Info

Exactly 100 years after the Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Turkey, a mysterious director (Simon Abkarian) is staging a play at the Los Angeles Theatre to honor the victims of that tragedy - a horrifying crime forgotten and denied for an entire century. But as protesters surround his theatre, and a series of strange accidents spread panic among his producer (Jim Piddock) and actors (Angela Sarafyan, Sam Page, Nikolai Kinski), it appears that the director's mission is profoundly dangerous, and the ghosts of the past are everywhere.

[Its] admirable intentions don't make up for its muddled execution.

There might be an engaging film buried beneath the severe dialogue, portentous music and ominous shadows of "1915." But a relentless and heavy-handed script makes the effort to find it seem futile.

The film plays out like a pensive, high-minded version of "Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)."

1915 suffers from simplifying the complex and opaque.

The great modern film made by Armenians about their greatest catastrophe remains to be made, I guess.

July 14, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Despite its narrative clumsiness, 1915 does an impressive job of balancing different perspectives and concerns around the issue of remembrance, perhaps seeking to provoke more open dialogue on the subject.
