LOS ANGELES—Production companies Bloodvine Media and Strongman announced their co-production of 1915, a psychological thriller set against one of the most terrifying events of modern history.
1915 is the feature film debut of writer-directors Garin Hovannisian and Alec Mouhibian. Together with producer Terry Leonard (Before I Disappear, Cold Comes the Night, Amira & Sam, Hounddog) and an international cast including Simon Abkarian (Casino Royale, The Cut, Gett), Angela Sarafyan (The Immigrant, Twilight), Sam Page (Mad Men, House of Cards), Nikolai Kinski (Aeon Flux), and Jim Piddock (HBO’s Family Tree, The Prestige), 1915 was filmed on location in Los Angeles.
Set on the single day of April 24, 2015—the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide—the film follows one man’s controversial and dangerous mission to bring the ghosts of a forgotten tragedy back to life. The movie will play a leading role in the global movement this spring to shed light on all genocides of the past century.
Grammy Award winning musician and human rights activist Serj Tankian (System of a Down) has composed the cutting-edge original score for 1915.
“We expect 1915 to be more than a movie,” said co-director Garin Hovannisian. “We have made this movie to serve not only as art or entertainment, but also as an act of defiance against the continuing silence, indifference, and denial that have fueled an entire century of genocide.”
