As the anniversary of the 1915 Armenian Genocide approaches, System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian has released the score he wrote for the film “1915,” and it accents the intense story beautifully. Here’s how he described the premise of the film to AltPress.com: “There are horror elements, mystery elements; it’s a strong, dark drama about how to deal with loss. The film is about a theater director who puts on this production on April 24, 2015, the one-hundredth anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. He has this dark mystical intuition that things are going to change, that there’s going to be almost a time warp because of the event itself. It’s the first film I’ve seen that deals with the diaspora trauma of loss; how the descendants of people who died in the genocide feel about it, in the U.S., France, Argentina and other parts of the world. I’ve never seen a film like that.”
Serj has also premiered the first official video off the “1915” project, and you can view it below. The System Of A Down front man teamed up with Larisa Ryan for the powerful “Ari Im Sokhag” single, and it showcases Serj’s talent as a songwriter like never before.
