“A mother’s love begins before the child is born and lasts through time, and difficulties, and differences, and many wounds, and many days of joy, and days of sorrow. Winding, wearing, weeping, sharing, changing until, at the end what remains is that solid core that began as love before the child was born.”

Via cinema we can shine a light on the Kurdish People: their dreams, struggles, history, culture, nature, memory, existence and language.
This festival is dedicated to Kurdish Mothers, who have been and still are the foundation of the Kurdish Identity.

​Mothers, who give birth to life…
Mothers, who bring colours wherever they go…
Mothers, who instill culture in children…
Mothers, who teach you how to dance and sing…
Mothers, who teach you how to laugh…
Mothers, who teach you how be creative in life…
Mothers, who above all, teach you how to love…
Mothers, who create a safe space no matter what…
Mothers, who are the advocates of change…
Mothers, who didn’t speak Turkish, brought up children who didn’t speak Kurdish or brought up children in different countries with different identities…
Mothers, who have lost their children due to a dirty war or have seen their children face each on opposing sides…
Mothers, who carry the world on their shoulders…
Mothers, who are the freedom fighters…
