Join us in exploring the powerful story of a banned language and a silenced culture.

This short film takes you back to the 1980s in Turkey, where the Kurdish language and music were forbidden. Watch as soldiers try to prevent the music from being played at a wedding, only to be left powerless when they hear the sounds of a neighbouring Kurdish village across the Syrian border.

This film highlights the ongoing pressure on the use of the Kurdish language and music and the lack of change in the past 40 years. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness the struggle for cultural identity and freedom.
