"Tekoser" by director Dario Salvetti to be screened in Amsterdam

The documentary "Tekoser" directed by Dario Salvetti will be screened in Amsterdam on Sunday 19 April.

The documentary "Tekoser" by director Dario Salvetti will be screened in Amsterdam on Sunday 19 April at Vondelbunker.

Lorenzo Orsetti - Orso/"Tekoşer Pilîng" - was an Italian internationalist who was killed in the fight against ISIS in Rojava on 18 March 2019.

After the screening we will discuss the movie and the current situation in Rojava. Donations from this night will go to the Lorenzo Orso Tekoşer foundation. The event will be held in English.

The documentary, as the director said himself, “is strongly inspired by the writings by Lorenzo Orsetti. Although it was not conceived as a documentary on the Rojava revolution and the conflict in Syria, Tekoşer does not fail to leave an important fresco on the characteristics of that conflict and of the revolutionary project in Rojava. But in the narrative development, other levels gradually emerge, such as the meaning of being partisans today, and finally, the problem of the purpose and meaning of life itself."

The documentary has been realised with the collaboration of Fondazione Archivio Audiovisivo del Movimento Operaio e Democratico.
