Part of the Seventh Art Stand

Directed by Soleen Yusef. Germany/Iraq (KRG)/Qatar. 2016. 117min. German and Kurdish with English subtitles.

House Without Roof tells the story of siblings Alan, Jan, and Liya who were born in Iraqi Kurdistan but grew up in Germany. The three want to fulfill their mother's last wish and bury her in their home village next to their father who died in war. During this fraught Kurdish odyssey they are not only confronted by their big Kurdish family, which doesn't accept their mother's wish, but also by themselves. During the last years the distance between the family members has increased, each lives their own life and when they talk to each other it soon becomes dominated by mutual accusations. At the same time, a terrible conflict is rising in their home country and first no one recognizes the dimensions of this conflict.
