Short film of Cansiz’s resistance: 3 Days in 10 Years

The short film “3 Days in 10 Years” about the life of Sakine Cansiz, one of the founders of the Kurdistan Workers’ party (PKK), will be shown on January 9.

The Niweger Culture and Arts Center is producing a short film about leading PKK cadre Sakine Cansiz’s resistance in the Amed Prison.

The short film titled “3 Days in 10 Years” depicts Cansiz’s resistance against the Turkish state oppression and tyranny.

30 members of the cultural center are acting in the film, which is almost complete.

The film takes inspiration from Cansiz’s book titled My Whole Life Was A Struggle and includes comments and memories from Cansiz’s friends in the struggle.


The film will be shown on January 9, the anniversary of the martyrdom of Sakine Cansiz, Fidan Dogan and Leyla Saylemez (Sara, Rojbin, Ronahi).

The Niweger Culture and Arts Center will enter the film in festivals.
