Authorities in Constantinople have banned the screening of a documentary about the Armenian revolutionary Armenak (Orhan Bakir). The film is called “Armenak. The scar from the sword on the forehead. According to the event organizers, Armenak is one of the historical symbols of brotherhood of Turks, Kurds, Armenians, Greeks and other nations, and in this respect only those with extreme and regressive views can be bothered by a movie about such a person. 

Organizers point out that these decisions have no legal basis.
