Directed and written by Luis Miranda
In presenting the Kurd community in Alsace, “My neighbour, the Kurd” shows us a part of the world generally ignored by the media: Turkish Kurdistan, prey to repression, where the population finds itself in an increasingly dramatic situation. At the heart of the film, the NEWROZ festival at the beginning of the New Year bears witness to the people’s solidarity and hope while showing the absurdity of the military repression and the country’s lawlessness.
