Atom Egoyan
KANADAS GRÖSSTER AUTORENFILMER ist auf der ganzen Welt berühmt für seine hypnotisch vertrackten, identitätspolitisch zugespitzten Psychodramen aus dem Musterland multikultureller Zuwanderung. Geboren am 19.7.1960 in Kairo als Sohn eines Flüchtlingspaars aus Armenien, aufgewachsen in Kanada. Studium der Politologie und klassischen Gitarre. Videokunstinstallationen u.a. in Oxford und auf der Biennale in Venedig, Operninszenierungen ("Salome" 1996, Wagners "Ring" 2004). Dem Kino, der Malerei, der Oper verfallen - dem Film als Lichtkunst auf grosser Leinwand.
Lebt in Toronto mit der hinreissenden Schauspielerin (und Politologin) ARSINÉE KHANJIAN (CODE : UNBEKANNT, MEINE SCHWESTER, EXOTICA, FELICIA), aufgewachsen in Beirut, und ihrem Sohn Arshile. Arshile heisst so nach dem berühmten abstrakt-expressionistischen Maler ARSHILE GORKY (1904-48), einem Überlebenden des Genozids, der in New York seinen armenischen Namen Adoian verleugnete und dann 20 Jahre nach einem Familienfoto am Doppelporträt seiner umgekommenen Mutter malte, bevor er sich das Leben nahm. Es ist das Bild, es sind die Phantome seines Lebens, die die Kunsthistorikerin Ani in ARARAT heimsuchen...

Singer-actor-composer-songwriter Charles Aznavour (Edward) was born Chahnour Varinag Aznavourian in 1924 in Paris, France, after his parents fled Turkey in the wake of the Turkish massacre. He is one of France's legendary entertainers whose extraordinary career has spanned six decades. Aznavour is considered to have reinvented the French chanson, has composed more than 600 songs, has sold more than 100 million records and has appeared in over 60 films.Aznavour made his theatrical debut as a dancer at the age of nine. He went on to become an international singing sensation and movie star, working with the likes of musical legends Edith Piaf and Maurice Chevalier and film directors such as Andre Cayatte (Tomorrow Is My Turn, for which Aznavour received the 1960 Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival); René Clair (Three Fables of Love); Julien Duvivier (Devil and The Ten Commandments); Claude Chabrol (The Hatter's Ghost, The Twist); Volker Schlondorff (The Tin Drum); and Francois Truffaut, with whom he created perhaps his most memorable role as the lead in Shoot the Piano Player.Some of his numerous career highlights include his 1964 sell-out performance at Carnegie Hall; his 1967 London debut at Royal Albert Hall, which was also sold-out; his UK No. 1 hit single, "She" (which was recently re-recorded by Elvis Costello for the soundtrack of the film, Notting Hill); and his honourary Cesar Award (France's equivalent of the Academy Award®), which he received in 1997 for his invaluable contributions to French cinema.More recent accomplishments include his compositions for the musical comedy "Lautrec"; his latest album Jazznavour; his appearance with Sting, Elton John, Billy Joel and other popular music stars in Sting's annual rain-forest benefit concert at Carnegie Hall; and his being chosen "Entertainer of the Century" in an online poll sponsored by TIME Magazine, edging out the likes of Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan.

On television, she starred in the CBC drama series, Side Effects and has established a dynamic collaboration with Ken Finkleman, with the series More Tears, Foreign Objects, and Foolish Heart. The latter of which, she performed entirely in Armenian, and earned her both the Gemini Award, and the Best Actress Award from the Cinema Tout Ecran (Switzerland). Most recently, she hosted a special presentation of the CBC's Opening Night, dealing with genocide - an issue that Khanjian has been fervently involved with, especially as an activist for international recognition of the historic Armenian Genocide.Khanjian is an active volunteer and board member of arts groups internationally, including the Zoryan Institue, and The Power Plant, Canada's leading contemporary art gallery.Currently, in Toronto, Khanjian is starring on stage in the Canadian premiere of Marivaux's Counterfeit Secrets, directed by John Van Burek.
