Sytem of a Down's music and voice are being used in the new movie 'Screamers.' The film premiered on November 2, in L.A. as part of the AFI Film Festival. Friday, January 12, 2006, 'Screamers' will be hitting theaters in: New York City, Detroit, Washington D.C., San Francisco, Fresno and Boston.
The film is directed by humanitarian activist Carla Garapedian, and is a documentary that follows moder-day genocide and genocide denial, starting with the Armeninan genocide, and how the lack of action from the international community has lead to other massacres.

"The band felt compelled to work with this unique project that hauntingly illustrates how the denial of those crimes lead to more genocides of the 20th Century from the Holocaust to Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda...and all the way to present-day Darfur."

The movie has System's music as a background and asks questions like "Can we stop genocide? Do we really mean "never again?" And how can we take action to prevent atrocities of this magnitude from happening in the future?"

I think this is great. Both for the cause, and the band. As a supporter of both, I think everybody should watch this movie, if not for the genocide aspect of it, then at least to listen to some awesome System music.

That's great news!

Side note: I thought Screamers was that movie that's supposed to be gross and funny at the same time..

I just read that Serj's grandfather is going to be in the movie. His grandfather was interviewed about the genocide, and his surviving through it, and all of his stories.

This link opens up a little clip of Serj talking about his grandfather's interviews and whatnot.

They have quite a few of them as you can imagine, so that question, and the statement that caused it, are very general.
