About The Cut by Fatih Akin
Premiering first at the Venice Film Festival late last year, THE CUT has since become one of the most highly anticipated films about the Armenian Genocide to be screened in the United States.
This powerful drama centers on Nazaret Manoogian (Tahar Rahim), a blacksmith who crosses continents in search of his two daughters after his family is shattered by the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Playing a character who survives a throat slashing, Rahim’s performance is largely wordless but deeply moving. Watch the official trailer below.
“A genuine, hand-made epic, of the type that people just don’t make anymore … that has great intensity, beauty and sweeping grandeur.” – Martin Scorsese.
Proceeds will benefit the Syrian Armenian Relief Fund (SARF).
