A Year in Exile

Malaz Usta

This is the story of a lonely and young Syrian immigrant’s first year outside his small country in a metropolitan city, Istanbul.

Through a collection of images and sounds, the film exhibits what he faces, the pictures that he sees, the crowded thoughts in his head, and the state of shock that he lives throughout this year.

 

This short film is part of the Shorts that Matter 2021 programme. You buy one ticket for all Shorts that Matter and you can watch them online on demand throughout the whole festival period.
