PanARMENIAN.Net – The Armenian National Film Center refuted reports
about talks with the famous U.S. director Steven Spielberg to produce
a film dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
“Director of the National Film Center Gevorg Gevorgyan spoke about this
back in 2010, and all of a sudden we came across this information on
some websites,” a spokesperson for the Film Center told PanARMENIAN.Net
According to Ruzanna Bagratunyan, they have considered the idea of
producing such a film, and the idea is still there. “It is a huge
load of work, and we are trying to do it in time; all of us understand
what this date means for the whole Armenian nation,” she stressed.
It should be noted that a year ago Spielberg did voice an intention
to develop a full-length feature film on the Armenian Genocide,
and strangely enough this information is again being rumored now.
