Ely Film Society - celebrating and sharing film in all its forms
Our next film, on WEDNESDAY 23rd November, is Ararat, a Canadian war drama made in 2002.
Based loosely on the defense of Van in 1915 during Turkey's war against its Armenian minority, Ararat explores the problems of using drama to explore history.
A mother who only wants peace, a young woman who wants nothing but retribution, and a young man whose journey to uncover his roots is jeopardizing his future are estranged members of a contemporary Armenian family who face Turkey's denial of their catastrophic past.
In addition to exploring the human impact of that specific historical event, the film also examines the nature of truth and its representation through art.
The screening will commence at 7.30pm.
