Whispers of War
When Khalil, a primary school teacher in Berlin, gets hold of images of war from his Kurdish hometown of Cizre, he is forced to question his entire existence in Berlin. His life spirals out of balance as he seems to recognise his long lost sister in the videos – whom he thought long dead. He tries everything to get in contact, to save his sister, to inform the public about this brutal war. And loses himself.
Florian Hoffmann explores the role and reliability of (war) images in our media society – with an amazing Hadi Khanjanpour in the main role of Khalil.
"Whispers of War" participated in Marche du Filmi Black Nights Goes to Cannes presentation in 2021.
