The documentary is telling the Rojava Revolution, with stories of Assyrian, Kurdish, Arabic people. This people are subjected to the ISIS attacks, on the other hand they are trying to build a communal system like democratic autonomy. This struggle is not easy in a region like Syria, where the war continues and showing the effects on people’s life.

‘Roza – Welatê du Çeman’, the country of the two rivers aims to show, first hand, and with high quality filmed examples, the reality of the revolution: assemblies, parties, funerals, the vision of the Arab community involved in the Rojava project.

The revolution had to be filmed. And it has been with the price of prison.

Un cineasta kurd condemnat a 2,5 anys de presó per un documental

a dilluns, de novembre 23, 2020

El cineasta kurd Kutbettin Cebe ha estat condemnat a gairebé dos anys i mig de presó a Turquia pel seu documental “Roza – La terra dels dos rius” sobre la revolució de Rojava.

El documental és una obra col·lectiva realitzada per Komina Film Rojava, una entitat que vol aprofundir en la tasca àudio visual per explicar la revolució a Rojava i amb la que col·laborem des de KurdisCat.

‘Roza – Welatê du Çeman’, el país dels dos rius pretén mostrar, de primera mà, i amb exemples filmats d’alta qualitat, la realitat de la revolució: les assemblees, les festes, els funerals, la visió de la comunitat àrab implicada en el projecte de Rojava.

La revolució havia de ser filmada. I ho ha estat amb el preu de la presó.

samuel champagne 2 years ago A lot of people seem to confuse Rojava with statist communism. Here, everyone is involved in the decision-making process so when something is happening, is born of a consensus that slowly emerged from various conceptions of the situation. Its not an emotional response like a mob, its not disconnected bureaucrats who are accountable only to an even more disconnected leadership. There is an anticapitalist notion, that people shouldn’t be allowed to be hungry when some richer neighbor is hoarding food to jack up the price of goods to profit from desperate people. But instead of forcing that notion down people’s throat, they are doing it through a dialogue where they explain how a decision came to happen, concede to genuine argument and produce a compromise when possible.
