Only the Dead Return Home

Over one million Kurds live as political refugees in exile in Europe and many of them can never return to Turkey as they would be imprisoned immediately. But Kurdish freedom fighters are also prosecuted as terrorists in various EU countries. This film portrays these Kurds and shows places to where they can never return. It displays a movement of liberation, inspired by democratic, multi-ethnical and feminist ideals, and the fight for the Kurdish language and culture A/IRQ 2015 Regie: Tina Leisch, Ali Can
