There is a 1919 silent film about the Armenian genocide, “Ravished Armenia,” originally produced in Hollywood using Turkish documentary footage. It was based on a book by a survivor, Aurora Mardiganian, who also starred in the production. The film originally consisted of nine reels, most of which have been lost. Recently, a twenty-minute clip was found that contains brief scenes of many of the incidents that took place during the genocide.1 more>>>
Just thought I'd point out that the crucifixion scene was a Hollywood re-enactment and not documentary film. In fact the sixteen girls were subject, not to crucifixion, but to what seems to be the khazouk (impalement) according to the witness' account in the wiki article 'Aurora Mardigarian.'
Excellent article. Thank you
