Close-Up Kurdistan

Close-Up Kurdistan

Yavuz creates a connection between his personal story of immigration and the current situation of the Turkish-Kurdish conflict. In the film he makes a personal journey which takes him from Hamburg via Stockholm to Turkey, ending in the north of Iraq, in the refugee camp Maxmur in Iraqi Kurdistan. Throughout this journey he meets, among others, his parents and old friends, some of whom went to the mountains to become guerrilla fighters, others who fled the country and went into exile. The film moves along a fine line between political facts and personal stories.
