The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

"Dol" is a Kur­dish film re­leased in 2007, di­rected/ pro­duced/writ­ten by fa­mous Kur­dish di­rec­tor Hiner Saleem who di­rected and/or wrote many popular Kur­dish pro­duc­tions like "My Sweet Pep­per­land", "Vodka Le­mon", "Kilo­me­tre Zero" and more.

The movie it­self re­volves around a man named Azad and his be­trothed, Nazenin, who both have plans set up for their com­ing wed­ding. How­ever, their plans for a quiet and peace­ful wed­ding are in­ter­rupted as a strife emerges be­tween a num­ber of Turk­ish sol­diers on the day of the event. Azad is forced to get away from all the dan­ger, trav­el­ling through the rugged ru­ins of the Kur­dish ar­eas of Iraq and Iran. As a Kur­dish man him­self, Azad re­con­nects with the cul­ture of his her­itage while at the same time wit­ness­ing the shat­ter­ing ef­fect the war had on Kur­dis­tan.

Over­all, "Dol" con­tained many aes­thetic and en­gag­ing scenes and pho­tog­ra­phy as it pro­gressed fur­ther. It's name, "Dol", ac­tu­ally refers to the tra­di­tional Kur­dish tam­bourine used in fes­ti­vals which are dec­o­ra­tive by na­ture. It's a film that delves into the after ef­fects of war and the im­por­tance of con­nect­ing with your coun­try and stay­ing true to it's cul­ture- def­i­nitely a must-see for all Hiner Saleem fans.
