The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Kur­dish short film of “Raha” is go­ing to take part at the 7th edi­tion of Susi Film Fes­ti­val which is an In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val to be held in Morocco on 8-11 May, 2014. Nine­teen coun­tries with 32 short films and 13 doc­u­men­tary films are ex­pected to com­pete in the fes­ti­val.

The fes­ti­val is con­sid­ered as one of the largest events ded­i­cated to the cin­ema. It is also the site of the prin­ci­pal pho­tog­ra­phy of many in­ter­na­tional pro­duc­tions.

The fes­ti­val's jury brings to­gether in­ter­na­tional writ­ers, ac­tors and per­son­al­i­ties, and en­deav­ors to re­ward the best Moroc­can and for­eign fea­ture and short films.

"Raha" short film talks about the des­tiny of a Kur­dish girl from west of Kur­dis­tan who un­der­goes sev­eral in­hu­mane treat­ments in her life: the first one, she is sold by her hus­band for the sake of gain­ing a gun and she never re­turns. The sec­ond one, she is lost by her brother in poker games. The third one is that she sells her­self, and later her hand is cut by a smug­gler in a city near the bor­der. She is left in the lurch and can’t cross the bor­der. This is the con­tent of the film whose sce­nario is writ­ten by Ako Aziz Mirza and Luq­man Sukhanawar. The idea of the film is by Ma­soud Arif and it is di­rected by Ako Aziz Mirza. The pho­tog­ra­phy and light are done by Arish Yaz­dani. The Tech­ni­cal ad­vi­sor and as­sis­tant di­rec­tor is Azad Bas­tan. Barham Tayeb also has played a sig­nif­i­cant role in de­sign­ing works and se­lect­ing lo­ca­tions for the film. The prod­uct man­ager of the film is Ka­ma­ran Nouri. Parzheen and Di­lan Taha are the stars of the film.

The du­ra­tion of the film is only 13 min­utes and it is a 5D prod­uct which has been pho­tographed in 2014 by Su­laimaniya Cin­ema Direc­torate. The film is also planned to par­tic­i­pate in the Black In- ter­na­tional Fes­ti­val in Berlin and Er­bil Fes­ti­val which are ex­pected to be held soon.

“I hope I have done a beau­ti­ful work. I hope the film will at­tract the at­ten­tion of the film­mak­ers and spec­ta­tors as well. I tried to work dif­fer­ently com­pared to my pre­vi­ous works. For in­stance, dia­logues are fewer in this prod­uct,” said di­rec­tor Ako Aziz Mirza

Mirza is one of the most fa­mous di­rec­tors in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and he has di­rected 15 short films, doc­u­men­taries and long films un­til now.
