My Sweet Pep­per Land

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

"My Sweet Pep­per Land" is a French-Ger­man-Kur­dish film di­rected by Huner Saleem, a fa­mous Kur­dish film maker. The ac­tion takes place in a re­mote vil­lage in Kur­dis­tan on the borders of Turkey, Iran and Iraq. The story be­gins with a man named Baran who was fa­mous for his brav­ery in the war for the Kur­dish In­de­pen­dence. Baran feels ill at ease and use­less af­ter the war. He thinks that he had no place in a time of peace such as this.

Per­haps be­cause of this he gave his con­sent when the po­lice force he had planned to leave re­quested him to be­come a sher­iff. The vil­lage where he was sta­tioned was an an­ar­chic and chaotic re­gion filled with drug abuse and traf­fick­ing. Once there, he meets Govend, a school teacher of the vil­lage whose moral up­bring­ing doesn't al­low her to bend to the law­less ways of the vil­lagers. This os­tra­cizes her from the pop­u­la­tion as a re­sult.

So, with that, the two of them try to bring the rule of law into the de­mor­al­ized and un­govern­able place, while si­mul­ta­ne­ously go­ing up against the vil­lage's war­lordAga Azzi.

"My Sweet Pep­per Land" is a joint film with a western theme of jus­tice. It brings out the in­dig­na­tion in ev­ery cin­ema lover and is guar­an­teed to leave them with a sense of happy-go-lucky warmth at the pit of their stom­achs. It's a story bound to leave an im­pres­sion on all who watch it.
