CINÉMATHÈQUE QUÉBÉCOISE (SALLE FERNAND-SEGUIN)
In the valleys of Kurdistan, many women have joined the PKK to defend their people against Daesh, the Turkish army or Iranian forces. Gulîstan, terre de roses shows us the daily lives of these young fighters, including training, heated discussions and times of high alert. The war is a threat at all times, but they keep laughing, living and being women, caring for their hair as well as their weapons. Zaynê Akyol takes us inside the close camaraderie of these warriors with nothing to lose, who generously share their political opinions, thirst for freedom and fierce feminism. A poignant, lovingly made film that gives us an unforgettable glimpse at the lives of women warriors.
PRESENTED IN COLLABORATION WITH THE CSN AND UQAM
