SOAS Kurdish Society and MARSM UK will present the online screening of Darên bi tenê (The Only Trees) immediately followed by a Q&A with director Şêro Hindê on Friday 16 October, at 6 pm (UK time).
Because of Covid-19 the SOAS Kurdish Society has been forced, like all other societies and groups, to cancel many of its planned events and resort to online events for the time being.
Şêro Hindê is promoting his new film Evîn Di Rûyê Qirkirinê De" (Love in the face of genocide), about the dengbej in Shengal.
Both films have been produced by the Rojava Film Commune and feature music by Mehmûd Berazî.
About Darên bi tenê
Darên bi tenê is a fascinating documentary exploring the “dengbej” musical heritage of the singers, poets and storytellers from Northern Syria’s Rojava region. Featuring a stunning scenery of poetic landscapes, the film is interlaced with stories of Kurdish and Assyrian songs that narrate the long history of love and suffering of this semi-autonomous region.
With a polyethnic population of Kurds, Assyrians and Armenians, witness a new generation of storytellers from Komina Filma Rojava film collective, as they pay tribute to the men and women keeping the stories, dance, heritage and lives of Rojava’s people alive through their songs.
