About the Movie
In 2015, exactly 100 years after the Armenian Genocide, a mysterious director (Simon Abkarian) stages a play in Los Angeles to honor the victims of that crime — forgotten and denied for an entire century. But as protestors surround his theater, and strange accidents spread panic among his actors (Sam Page, Angela Sarafyan) and producer (Jim Piddock), it appears that Simon’s mission is profoundly dangerous — and the ghosts of the past are everywhere. Featuring an original score by Serj Tankian, of System of a Down, 1915 is a riveting psychological thriller that will forever change the way we think about the past.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There might be an engaging film buried beneath the severe dialogue, portentous music and ominous shadows of "1915." But a relentless and heavy-handed script makes the effort to find it seem futile.
Fresh: The film plays out like a pensive, high-minded version of "Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)."
Rotten: [Its] admirable intentions don't make up for its muddled execution.
A great adaptation!
This is a great film about a play, well executed and is something I will be proud to own. Good work filmmakers, good work!
The film was very exciting and informative.
1915 The Movie
This movie is very well written and directed. It is a multi-dimensional psychological and metaphysical mystery thriller, the likes of which are hard to find. I am glad I purchased it as it is the rare film that can be viewed multiple times with satisfying rewards each time, on so many levels. I feel elevated by my interaction with the plot and characters. Thanks iTunes!
pellbinding!!! A masterfully crafted spiritual journey, transcending the margins of time and space, in a fitting centennial commemoration of the heinous Genocide of the century, accomplished without blood, gore, special effects, sex, violence or pretention. If I haven't lost your attention, then you probably crave fine cinematic art.
Frame one, and the audience is gliding like a summoned spirit in the shadows of the theater. We become the unseen eye of the camera, immersed in the ever-transforming theatrical production on the stage of life and soul. The trans fixation is complete as we interact with the characters while they scrutinize each other's scars from a mysterious past. No detail is random. With each word, movement and camera approach, the shattered pieces of the victims and perpetrators of this heinous crime interrelate in an ever-changing mosaic of redemption.
In a short 82 minutes, the film delivers mystery, introspection and enlightenment, in a heartfelt offering of love and commemoration to the sacred souls of all of our ancestors, whether Armenian, Greek, Assyrian, and all human beings that were robbed of their culture, dignity, and right to life by the unfathomable crime of Genocide. If you value cinematic art, you will likely view this film several times, and the film will change you each time.
