Frames of Representation: Gulîstan, Land Of Roses (Gulîstan, Terre De Roses)

27 Apr 2017

This is the UK premiere of Gulîstan, Land Of Roses and will be preceded by an introduction.

Gulîstan left Montreal as a young woman to join the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in its fight against Daesh. Following her story, director Zaynê Akyol brings us a powerful vision of women risking their lives for what they believe in. We see them train in guerrilla tactics and form new friendships; throughout, the threat of violence continues to grow.

Patient and self-aware, Akyol elicits mesmerising interviews which shed light on the women’s motivations and fears. At the heart is the question: what is the cost of our freedom?
