System of a Down singer and political activist Serj Tankian will be the featured subject in a forthcoming documentary exploring his mission in spreading global awareness about the 2018 Armenian Revolution through music.

To be titled, Truth to Power, the forthcoming film from director Garin Hovannisian and Live Nation productions will arrive via Oscilloscope Laboratories on February 19th, 2021, and will also feature cameos from Tankian’s System of a Down bandmates along with notable industry veterans including producer Rick Rubin and Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine). Both Tankian and Morello co-founded the Axis of Justice non-profit organization in 2002 which brings together musicians, fans, and grassroots activism to fight for social justice and progressive political causes.

Tankian and Hovannisian had previously teamed up for the latter’s 2019 film, I Am Not Alone, for which Tankian provided the film score. Tankian also provided the score for Truth to Power, which will include his own video footage captured during the 2018 Armenian protests. Along with highlighting Tankian’s three-decade journey as a political activist, the film will also look at how the rock singer writes and uses the art of music to bring about change.

System of a Down returned to headlines when their music video for 2001’s “Chop Suey!” reached the virtual milestone of exceeding 1 billion views on YouTube last month. The rock band also celebrated the release of their first new music in 15 years last month with “Protect The Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz”, which will raise money to benefit the Armenia Fund, a US-based non-profit that the band says is critical to providing much-needed supplies to the peoples of Artsakh and Armenia. The band has since revealed that the two new recordings have helped raise over $600,000 for aid in the turbulent region.
