Opening night invitation

Gulîstan, Land of Roses by Zaynê Akyol

At Cinéma du Parc in Montreal, January 20th at 7:30pm,

Q & A with the director, Zaynê Akyol, following the screening.

Presented by the The Montreal Network of Kurdish Solidarity (Réseau de Solidarité Kurde de Montréal) in collaboration with Alternatives.

In the mountains and deserts of Kurdistan, female PKK guerillas are fighting ISIS (the Islamic State) as well as defending Kurdish territory in Iraq and Syria. In this startling intimate and absorbing documentary, these revolutionary women invite us into their daily lives, speak frankly about their hopes and ideals , and share reflections on their world. The film is an open window onto an unknown world, showing the feminist female face of a group of revolutionaries united by their shared vision.

 

In Kurdish with English subtitles, 2016, 86 minutes.
