One of the unmitigated disasters of the festival. . . . A grotesque travesty of the film that needs to be made about this urgent topic, which, to be honest, should probably look more like Wakamatsu/Adachi’s PFLP: Declaration of World War (1971) than a faux-profound melodrama that didn’t even have the guts not to present the conflict in Kurdistan through the liberal-humanitarian gaze of a Western observer.
