Belgian premiere of "The Pasha, my Mother and I"
Nevine Gerits' The Pasha, my Mother and I will have its Belgian premiere on two major festivals: Docville in Leuven and the Millenium Festival in Brussels.
Nevine is a filmmaker marked by the legacy of her Kurdish mother, an exiled activist, defending the cause of the Kurdish people. ‘The Pasha, my mother and I’ portrays a mother- daughter confrontation, focusing on the question of transmission; what heritage do we carry? How can we free ourselves from this heritage while giving meaning to our roots and helping future generations to build their identity?
