Please open here

 

 

On the 29.09.2017, 6 pm by Turkish time - Turkey stopped all flights to Kurdistan (Erbil and Sulaymaniyah). Team of the Slemani IFF bought air-tickets for me via Istanbul. And Team of the festival asked me make the video with my greetings to festival and Kurdish people.

 

Dear friends!

 

For many years I dreamed of getting into Kurdistan, because I have a very good attitude to the Kurdish people.

 

From August 19, 2017 began our cooperation with the International Film Festival in Slemani. I really like how we worked fruitfully during September 2017. It was a very invaluable experience!

 

I managed to get acquainted with the program of documentary films of Kurdistan - this is a very good list of films that give an idea of ​​the current situation in Kurdistan, the great dream of the Kurdish people - to become an independent state.

 

I wish success to the second international film festival Slemani! Thank you for the invitation to visit the wonderful city of Sulaymaniyah! I really hope that next year I will definitely come to Kurdistan!
