Atom Egoyan's new film "Remember" to premiere at Venice Film Festival

Atom Egoyan's new film "Remember" to premiere at Venice Film Festival

YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 2, ARMENPRESS. Armenian-Canadian director Atom Egoyan's new film Remember will premiere September 10 at the Venice Film Festival. “Armenpress” reports, referring to The Hollywood Reporter that the film stars Christopher Plummer as an Israeli Holocaust survivor who sets out on a path of revenge after discovering that the Nazi guard who murdered his family 70 years before is still alive and living in America.

In his interview Atom Egoyan said that Christopher Plummer plays a Holocaust survivor with early stages of dementia and thinks he has found someone responsible for killing his family in Auschwitz and goes on a revenge mission, but keeps on forgetting why. Egoyan last worked with Christopher Plummer on Ararat, which deals with the impact the Armenian genocide of 1915 had on later generations.

In reply to the journalists question whether there are any parallels between Plummer characters in “Ararat” and “Remember”, Egoyan said that the latter are 2 different characters.

“But it is interesting that on the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide, I am making a film called Remember which [deals] with this issue of acknowledging the past and notions of repressed or elective memory and how we understand trauma.”
