Dokufest: Call for solidarity with the victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria

Shk 13, 2023

DokuFest joins the fundraising campaign to help the victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria, by opening the doors of DokuKino to the public, starting tomorrow.

Over three days staring this week(February 14-16), a selection of films will be screened at DokuKino, Prizren. The films screenings include, documentary ‘LOVE, DEUTSCHMARKS & DEATH’ by Turkish filmmaker Cem Kaya, short films ‘IN BETWEEN’ and ‘DISPLACED’ by Samir Karahoda, as well as two short documentaries made in our film school ‘Future is Here’: ‘TIME’ by Endri Maloku and ‘DEDI’ by Blendi Haxhibeqiri.

100% of the proceeds from your donations at the film screenings will go towards the charity organization World Central Kitchen, which serves cooked food to communities affected by natural disasters who are undergoing humanitarian crises.

Our prayers are with the families and loved ones of those who were injured and lost their lives as a result of this tragedy.

Tuesday and Wednesday (14-15 February), 19:00
2022 — 96’ / Turkish, ALB subtitles

Love, Deutschmarks and Death tells the story of the independent and largely unknown music of immigrants from Turkey and their children and grandchildren in Germany in a very lively way, full of rhythm. In the form of a documentary essay, director Cem Kaya takes his viewers into a dazzling
universe of musical diversity. In a cinematic experience of the highest sound quality, he brings the energy and spirit of those years to life. E.g., the stage shows of the eccentric folk duo Derdiyoklar at a wedding with thousands of guests in a multi-purpose hall redecorated as a festival hall somewhere in the Ruhr region: melancholic, but danceable, political, but cheerful, larmoyant in expression, but sincere.
