Arts Digest : A capsule review and preview of art and entertainment in Armenia .


"ARARAT" cancelled Plans for a January release of Atom Egoyan's film "Ararat" in Turkey have reportedly been cancelled, a week after the government had approved the screening, Armenpress reported January 7. A Turkish extremist group has published a statement on its website threatening theatre owners who screen the film, which examines the impact of the Armenian genocide by the Turks of the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1923.

The Armenian National Committee of Canada has stated that the "terrorist-style threats" are preventing people from learning the truth about the country's violent past.
