As a new program-highlight, the 10th Kurdish Film Festival Berlin (8−14 October) shows experimental short films from Kurdish countries of origin and the diaspora. The selection offers special cinematic impressions between film and contemporary art. Critical, creative and complex reflections from Kurdish perspectives.
Among them is PARADISE by the Hamburg artists* Leyla Yenirce and Mazlum Nergiz – the film version of the art installation of the same name, which deals with the emotional language of the images around Kurdish martyrs and freedom fighters. The experimental short film BARIKAT shows a performance by the artist Mirkan Deniz, inspired by the daily fate of Kurds* living under curfew in various regions of Turkey.
The rest of the festival program will be shown in the cinemas Moviemento and Babylon Mitte, as well as for the most part online: https://kurdishfilmfestivalberlin.kinow.tv/de/
