An evocation of borders and identity, Flag Without a Country sees hobbling pilot Nariman looking for recruits for his flying school. Pop star Helly Luv, meanwhile, is stockpiling Kalashnikovs and Kurdish flags for her upcoming music video, and befriending refugee children near the Syrian border. Combining fact and fiction, Bahman Ghobadi has real people play versions of themselves, in this playful, soulful, and somehow hopeful ode to the resilience and culture of the Kurdish people.
All proceeds from this screening will be donated to a refugee charity.
Tickets available from the Rich Mix website now.
