The Holocaust, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, Darfur
… and every time a U.S. President, a British Prime Minister,
a U.N. Secretary General says "Never again." Yet it
happens - again, and again and again…
Multi-platinum, Grammy-award winning rock band, System of a Down's
critically acclaimed political tour movie, is an impassioned synthesis
of concert film and political expose about the rock group's intensely
personal campaign to stop genocide.
Chronicling the band's efforts to persuade both the British and
U.S. governments to recognize the Armenian genocide, Screamers
also traces the history of modern-day genocide - and genocide
denial - from the first occurrence in the 20th century in Turkey,
to today in Darfur. Commentary and interviews with Pulitzer prize-winning
author Samantha Power ("A Problem from Hell: America and
the Age of Genocide"), survivors from Turkey, Rwanda and
Darfur, FBI whistleblowers, and the recently assassinated Hrant
Dink, who was murdered in Turkey after appearing in this film,
shed light on why genocides repeat.
Passive politicians and corporate interests have conspired to
turn a blind eye to genocides as they are happening. We say 'never
again' but we don't mean it.
