The Others

Turkey/Germany, 2016 (66 min.)

The Kurdish province Van is famous for its unique cats, the cultural symbol of the Kurds, Turks and Armenians. Van was the historical home of the Armenians until 1915, the year of the genocide.  All that remains are the ruins of countless churches and a few inhabitants with Armenian roots, though most of them are scared to admit this. The 34-year-old Ali accompanies us through the world of the residents, one that is filled with taboos, distrust and fear. The film tracks down the traces of this cruel history and shows that, “the past is never dead, it is not even past” (Faulkner).

The film received prizes at the Istanbul Film Festival 2016 and
DOK Leipzig 2016
