Screening : Remembering Kurdi

The film tries to piece together fractured memories of a village that was submerged by the Salaulim Dam over three decades ago, but which resurfaces annually for a few weeks during the summer – allowing its prior inhabitants to return to perform rituals, visit the graves of their ancestors, have picnics in the ruins of their homes, and remember what is lost.
