PIFF 38: COME TO MY VOICE

ComeToMyVoice

In a snowy Kurdish mountain village in the east of Turkey, an old woman and her granddaughter are distressed. The only man in the household, the son of one and the father of the other, was arrested by the Turkish military. The commanding officer has been told that the villagers are hiding weapons, so he arrests all the town’s men and announces that they will be kept in prison until their families hand over the weapons. The problem is that no weapons actually exist. Desperate, the pair embarks on a long journey in search of a gun that they can exchange for their beloved family member. “A beautifully crafted drama whose traditional storytelling movingly conveys a sense of a community burdened by loss.”—Variety. Audience Awards, Istanbul and Milan Film Festivals.

COME TO MY VOICE screens Sunday, February 8 at 1pm at the Roseway Theater and Wednesday, February 11 at 5:45pm at the Moreland Theater as part of the 38th Portland International Film Festival.
