İki Dil Bir Bavul

On The Way to School

Orhan Eskiköy, Özgür Doğan, Turkey/Netherlands, 2008BetaSP, Colour, 81'

One year in the life of a Turkish teacher, teaching the Turkish language to Kurdish children in a remote village in Turkey. The children can’t speak Turkish; the teacher can’t speak Kurdish and is forced to become an exile in his own country. The film witnesses the communication problem emphasising the loneliness of a teacher in a different community and culture; and the changes brought up by his presence into this different community during one year. During this period, they begin to know and understand each other mutually and slowly.
