Trieste international film festival to be organized for 29th time this year in Trieste, Italy will be held from January 19 to January 28.
Productions about Kurdistan in addition to animations, Art & Sound section and movies on 68 generation enrich the festival program.
With love from Kurdistan
It is not surprising that there are movies about Kurdistan in Trieste, which is having difficulties in getting rid of the effects of the traumatic events that took place in the recent past.
A Flag Without Country directed by Bahman Ghobadi in 2015 goes between fiction and documentary. Iraqi Kurdistan is in the center of the incidents.
Filles du Feu (Girls of Fire) directed by Stéphane Breton in 2017 is a documentary. It focuses on Syrian Kurdish women who fight against Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and other enemies. We follow the freedom fighter women in their daily lives for seven months.
No Place for Tears bear Reyan Tuvi’s signature. It is a striking documentary that competed in Visions du Réel in Switzerland’s province of Nyon, Dokfest in Munich and Sarajevo Film Festival. It makes the audience think again on war, solidarity, independence and protecting your identity.
Granted awards at festivals in Bratislava, Locarno and Milan, the Meteors elevated the success rate of Gürcan Keltek. Keltek had proven his poetic perspective on cinema with his movie called Colony telling mass graves in Cyprus.
For his latest movie, we can say it is a fiction with documentary elements or vice versa. It is a political production as well as aesthetical on losses and memory with hypnotizing images.
Trieste will live and breathe with cinema for days, wouldn’t you join too? (MT/EKN/TK)
