Synopsis

On March 15, 1921, Soghomon Tehlirian assassinated one of the organizers of the Armenian genocide, the former Minister of the Internal affairs of Turkey, Talaat Pasha on Hardenberg Street, in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin. On June 2, 1921, the Moabit Court examined Tehlirian's case and found him innocent. The main subject of the current film is one of the regular performances of the project I Am Not a Murdurer, performed in a cultural center in Berlin. The viewers of the film together with the audience present in the hall, are able to follow the trial with all its stages: the examinations of the accused and the witnesses, the speeches of the fanciers, the public prosecutor's condemnatory oration, the advocates' defensive speeches... For the film viewers all this is periodically interrupted with interviews to make it easier to understand the essence and scale of what happened about a century ago.
