The first screening of the Kurdish film 'Toren' in Brazil

21/8/2019 17:39:00

The Kurdish film 'Toren' will be screened in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Saturday, August 24, 2019.


The screening will take place at 1 pm at the Alterdata hall which is the premier of the film in South America.


The film is about the story of a forgotten and endangered people as a result of their constant exposure to injustice, persecution and genocide, and the fleeing of their survivors in search of homelands to protect them and have to be integrated into strange societies. Toren is a story of search for belonging and complete dedication, is a struggle for survival and is the Hamlet of today (to be or not be).


Toren has won numerous awards at international film festivals, as it won the Jean-Luc Godard Award at the Film Critics Awards, the official member of the Cinema Society of the Lincoln Center, New York, the Merit Award at the Independent Film Awards in San Diego, Best Foreign Feature Film Award, Best Cinematography Award at the IMPFF Hollywood International Film Festival along with other international awards.
