Armenian Revolt - Tragedy in the Middle East, a documentary based on 2 years of extensive research, depicts the real story of the civil war which took place during the  last days of the Ottoman Empire.

The distribution rights for the documentary was initially acquired by Inecom Entertainment Company on April 2006. The famous online retailer Amazon.com started taking preorders. However, due to the suppression and threats Inecom received from the Armenian lobby in the US, they did not distribute the DVDs. Currently, the only channel through which the DVD can be purchased is the director Mr. Callaghan, or Turkish-American organizations. Due to demand, TurkishPAC purchased a set of this excellent documentary from its director Mr. Callaghan, and offering it at cost.

Each DVD costs $12, including shipping and handling. Allow 5 to 10 days for delivery. For now, we can only ship to US addresses.

In the shadows of WWI, the Armenian struggle for freedom and independence from the Ottoman Empire results in a gruesome Civil War, a splintered community and what is considered by some today, a genocide. Nearly a century later, there remains much debate about whether Turkish Muslims or Christian Armenians were more or less responsible for the brutality that took place.

Producer/Director Marty Callaghan said, "This balanced program is the first of its kind. While the tragic fate of Armenians in the World War I era has received a substantial amount of attention in news and documentary programming, the story behind the Armenian Revolt has been almost completely overlooked. 'Armenian Revolt - Tragedy in the Middle East' can educate Western audiences in an important era of Middle Eastern history that continues to influence public opinion and foreign policy today."

The documentary is based on two years of research with experts in the United States, Russia, Germany, Romania, England and Bulgaria. Interviews were filmed in the United States and Turkey. Stunning, historical footage from 1913 to 1919 has been found in the national archives of the United States, Romania and Bulgaria as well as in a private archive in Moscow, Russia. Still photographs were sourced in the United States and from a private collection in Berlin, Germany.

Callaghan is a veteran documentary filmmaker, focusing on military history, World War I and the Middle East for much of his career.
