The first screening of “The Promise,” a movie about Armenian Genocide, took place Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Oscar-winning filmmaker Terry George, actors Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, and Charlotte Le Bon as well as famous musician Serj Tankian, who is lead singer of the world-renowned American Armenian rock band System of a Down (SOAD) and composer of the soundtrack of this movie, “shone” on the red carpet event for the premiere of “The Promise.”
“Micahel Poghosian is an Armenian student. He is studying medicine in Constantinople and falls in love with character that is playing Charlotte Le Bon. A difficult love triangle emerges, because she has a boyfriend that Christian Bale plays. He used a diary from a small village he came from, and he promised to come back to get married. And this is all complicated when the World War One breaks out,” Oscar Isaac said in an interview with The New York Times.
In a video interview with The New York Times made via Facebook Isaac said he was reading evidence of the Armenian Genocide survivors.
“It was a process of reading a lot of different materials from the time. I witnessed testimonies of survivors and really trying to have a sense of this circumstances, of the horrible strive and the brutality that these people endured, and to believably try to come to some sense of understanding what that felt like,” he added.
