ARARAT - TEN YEARS AFTER <br> In this lecture, Atom Egoyan will revisit the making and trajectory of his 2002 film Ararat, which offers a special and precious insight into the Genocide of the Armenians during the First World War.

With fourteen feature films and related projects, Atom Egoyan has won numerous internationally recognized awards including five prizes at the Cannes Film Festival, two Academy Award® nominations, eight Genie Awards as well as major awards at film festivals in Hamburg, Tokyo, Jerusalem, Reykjavik, Las Palmas, Hong Kong, Cairo and Athens. In 2010, he had a full retrospective of his films at the Filmoteca Espagnol in Madrid, following similar events in previous years in Paris and New York. Egoyan has been President of the Jury of film festivals at Cannes, Berlin, Venice and Yerevan, as well as a jury member at the Sundance, Toronto, and Tribeca festivals.

The Dr. Berj H. Haidostian Annual Distinguished Lecture was established by the family of the late Dr. Berj Haidostian, a prominent and devoted physician, in honor of his long relationship with the University of Michigan and the Armenian Studies Program.
