Repeating a popular event from the last two winters, Casey Gallagan has selected a quartet of documentaries to get us through the dark and cold of January.
This week (January 2) we are screening GULISTAN, LAND OF ROSES, directed by Zayne Akyol. In the rough mountains and deserts of Kurdistan is an all-female guerilla brigade fighting ISIS. The battlefield is one of the only places these women can escape constricting gender roles. Fierce and proud, they instill fear in their enemy — not only for their bravery and skill, but also because, for ISIS soldiers, dying at the hands of a woman means they’ll never reach paradise. These militant members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party are united by a vision of freedom in every sense, putting their lives at risk for what they believe in.
