EVÎN DI RÛYÊ QIRKIRINÊ DE

Love in The Face of Genocide is a documentary exploring the oral literature of the Yazidi Dengbêj in Shengal, Kurdistan, produced by the Rojava Film Commune.The traditional art of the Yazidi bards not only represents cultural archives that document the recurring violence against this ethnic group, but also an important form of resistance. The film takes us to the mountains of Sinjar (Shengal), the homeland of the Yazidi Kurds. Carried by the haunting voices of the bards, the film shows how cultural and religious songs – across generations – help preserve their identity and hope for the community.
