Ararat is a 2002 “movie within a movie” directed by Atom Egoyan. In "Ararat", the character director/producer Edward Saroyan (Charles Aznavour) makes a movie to tell the story of the Armenian genocide in and around the town of Van in Eastern Turkey in 1915. As Raffi (David Alpay) is interrogated by a customs officer (Christopher Plummer), upon his return from a visit to Turkey, he recounts how his life was changed during the making of this film and by the life of artist Arshile Gorky (Simon Abkarian), who was a witness to the genocide.
