Project Description

The Instant

The Instant


Depicting the events of Mardin-İdil in the late 1980’s, the film deals with international migration of Assyrians in the context of “leaving” and “staying”, based on the story of an ordinary group. Today, among the 18 people who are narrated, nine live in Germany, seven live in Switzerland and only two people stayed in Turkey. This documentary, while combining the instants, on the other hand explores the memories of the past and today through the present atmosphere and aims to answer these questions: “Is it hard to go? To stay? Or to be together again?”
