National release of the film “The Promise” in movie theaters across the country.
For the first time, a major motion picture depicts the horrors of the Armenian Genocide, an unforgivable attempt by the Ottoman leaders at the turn of the 20th century to annihilate a population living in the Ottoman Empire, along with similar aggressions against ethnic Greek, Assyrian and other minorities.
With its star-studded cast of Hollywood talent and its world-renowned Academy Award winning director, the film has had an incredible amount of celebrity support through its “Keep the Promise” campaign. Most importantly, The Promise has brought the conversation about genocide recognition and prevention to a level never before seen. Human rights groups and partner organizations like Human Rights Watch, Jewish World Watch, the Enough Project, Shoah Foundation, University of California, Los Angeles and Global Nomads Group have joined to elevate the cause by relating history to current events and vowing to stand together to fight denial in any form.
