Nariman Alijevs "Evge" im Kino Arsenal
Filmscreening and Discussion of Nariman Aliev's Homeward / Evge
Friday, October 7, 19:30h
Nariman Aliev/Ukraine 2019/OMEU/ 96 Min.
HOMEWARD brings together the two landscapes of the Russian invasion in 2014: the war in the Donbass and the occupied Crimea. Crimean Tatar director Nariman Aliev tells story of a father who tries to bring the body of his son, a victim of the war in Donbass, from Kyiv to Crimea to be buried according to the rite of the Muslim Crimean Tatars. The arduous journey reveals how the experience of the current war in Ukraine calls up the repressed history of violence against the Crimean Tatars.
Introduction: Susanne Strätling & Daria Buteiko
The film was followed by a discussion with Tamila Tasheva (NGO CrimeaSOS; representative of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea since April 2022) and Victoria Leshchenko (Programme director of Docudays UA).
Organized by DGO and the Institute for Eastern European Studies of Freie Universität Berlin with the Ukrainian Film Festival Berlin.
