The film series CINEMA & HUMAN RIGHTS which is a part of the human rights film festival this human world is titled #DIREN//BERXWE BIDE//RESIST – spaces, brothers, sisters and others and focuses on various forms of resistance in Turkey.
As a part of this series, we will screen the film "THE OTHERS":
Ayse Polat’s subtle and brilliant film follows Armenian Ali as he talks to the Kurdish inhabitants of the historically Armenian province of Van, in the East of Turkey, about the Armenian genocide. The viewer is invited to question otherness, its arbitrariness and how it stands in the way of peaceful coexistence around the world. Watch the Trailer!
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion which will be held in English. We are looking forward to Gülşah KURT (University of Tours, France; Academics for Peace) and Thomas SCHMIDINGER (Department of Political Science, University of Vienna). Moderation: Hannes TRETTER (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights).
