Artistic Translation of Society Issues
29 December 2014 | by (Kurdistan) – See all my reviews

Hisham Zaman, the Kurdish Director, could translate one of the issue that Kurdish society and tribal environment which the Kurdish society has into a very artistic images which you can understand and accept through the film. Apart from the issues he present, he could also present the inner side of a Kurdish man who at the end a human who has a feelings and a big heart and can change to the better. Even if that change will cost him a lot. Though his film, Hisham could present the beauty and the ironical status of the society in a very beautiful combination of story and pictures which he could present. As for Hisham Zaman previous films, his short "Bawka" and his feature "Letter to the King" are presenting the creative a level of this successful Kurdish Director.
