Erden Kiral Tribute

A Season in Hakkari / Erden Kiral

An intellectual is “exiled” as a schoolmaster to a little village in south-west Turkey. A village without roads, without electricity, covered in snow seven months out of the year. Those who persist in living there bear the marks of a continuous struggle against nature which seems eager to destroy them. The hero of the film experiences the inhuman conditions of this reality: the human misery and the impossibility of communication. In order to struggle against this, he must first get to know these highlanders for whom time has stopped somewhere in the depths of history. And then there are the children who, if they do not die by the dozen, are bearers of a wonderful will for survival.
