Ararat (2002) - Details
Ararat is a contemporary story of two estranged families and their search for reconciliation and truth. It is also a historical reenactment (a film within a film) being made by a famous Armenian director, Edward Saroyan (Charles Aznavour), whose production is based on Clarence Ussher's actual book An American Physician In Turkey which depicts the Siege of Van, and the tragic events of 1915. Seamlessly shifting through time, Atom Egoyan explores the quest for personal, sexual and cultural identity through the intimate moments shared by lovers, families, enemies and strangers.
