Overview

Part of the 

strand.

A powerful account of the Kolbari covert goods traden between the Kurdish cities and towns of Iran and borders of Iraq.

The film follows Hamid and Yasser over six years as they contend with the life threatening conditions they and their families have to face to survive.

A rare insight into the plight of the Kurdish people, this is an elegant portrait of a marginalised people, where the palpable sense of risk and danger is contrasted with the gentle rhythms of family life under harsh conditions.

– Emma Boa


While the film focuses mostly on Hamid and Yasser, it’s really about the life of Kurdish people living in this small town at the edge of Iran and Iraq. You could just as easily have called this film “Life” or “Living.”

The film took 6 years to shoot, which we mostly did during the pandemic. I want nothing more than to have this film shown around the world and seen also by fellow Kurdish people. There is so much dignity in the way we live our lives even in the face of such poverty. I want the world to see it.

– Director Arash Rakhsha
