Resistance is Life


Turkey, Syria, USA, 2017, 72 min.

Director: Apo W. Bazidi
Producers: Apo W. Bazidi, Goran Zaneti

From a refugee camp on the Turkish-Syrian border, an 8-year-old girl, Evlin, characterizes the resistance of her homeland. Her heroes, the Kurdish female fighters, are defending the city of Kobane against the onslaught by ISIS militants. The power of the human spirit emanates through Evlin as she shows us that hope and resilience prevail even in the most tragic of circumstances. Evlin takes us on a journey that introduces the many different faces of the resistance on both sides of the border and provides a unique look at the extraordinary spirit behind the first major victory against ISIS.

Claire and Lila are neighbors. They both live in the same building, they see each other every day but they hardly know each others names. Until today, when Claire decides to pay a visit to Lila, a refugee from Syria recently resettled in US thanks to a program supported by the church, and to ask for something that will definitely put at risk the cohabitation.
