About the Event

Drama / France, Switzerland / Kurdish with subtitles / 2021 / 124 minutes - Watch the trailer here

Early 1980s in a Syrian border village: A new teacher arrives whose goal is to turn his Kurdish students into supporters of Syrian President Assad as well as determined, anti-Israel fighters. Sero, a young student, is confused because his long-time neighbors are a lovable Jewish family. With a fine sense of humor and satire, the film depicts a childhood that manages to find light moments between dictatorship and dark drama. This powerful film was inspired by the director Mano Khalil’s personal experiences.
