HKAFF2022 – Talk : Visualising Kurdish Lives Through Film
Date 2022.10.03 (Monday)
Venue Broadway Cinematheque
Speakers Övgü Gökçe Yaşa (Director, Diyarbakır Arts Center), with Voicing Voices directors Nalin Acar, Aylin
Throughout the years, Kurdish cinema has long been represented by filmmakers based outside of their ancestral lands. But there is an increasingly visible and vibrant generation of filmmakers coming of age, with work that presents daily life portraits as well as diverse representations of the existing reality. In this talk, the artists behind the Voicing Voices project will discuss the potential of both moving and still images in making Kurdish voices heard, both at home and abroad.
