The Garin Hovannisian-directed effort chronicles the System Of A Down frontman's continued activism and advocacy for the people of Armenia.

The forthcoming documentary Truth To Power, which details the ongoing social and political activism of System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian has a new trailer and an official poster.

Th Garin Hovannisian-directed film pools archival SOAD-footage, photos, and interviews with the likes of Tankian's bandmates, uber-producer Rick Rubin, and Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello to better explain the Tankian's fervent commitment to advocacy on behalf of the people of Armenia.

The film will also feature new music from Tankian’s soon to be released Elasticity EP, dropping on Alchemy Recordings.

“With Oscilloscope and Live Nation at our back, the music and message of our film can now touch the hearts and minds of audiences across the world, inspiring all of us to speak – and bring – truth to power,” said Hovannisian said in a statement.

Among the causes central to the film include Tankain's continued call for awareness regarding the Armenian revolution of 2018. System Of A Down recently released the first new material in 15 years with a tandem of tracks in "Protect The Land" and "Genocidal Humanoidz". The songs served to raise awareness and generate funds to aide in the humanitarian efforts for Artsakh and Armenia amid ongoing conflicts with Azerbaijan and Turkey.

The band raised more than $600,000 with their campaign.

Truth To Power arrives February 19th. Watch the trailer below.
