Review: “A truly fascinating (and exasperating) film on what the quest for ethnic freedom and independence re-e-ally looks like.”

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 2.21.11 PM

Published by the Borrego Sun, Jan. 22, 2016. Full review:

“This film lays out one of the most difficult to grasp social-political-ethnic-geographic-religious situations imaginable in the world today, and this brief review will not do justice to the film. Suffice it to say that the Crimean Tatars have a huge hill to climb in their quest for autonomy on a peninsula in the far-western Russian Federation. Their struggles and torments are reminiscent of Holocaust victims, being bustled off to exiled oblivion on crowded, lice-infected trains; an outside political system that refuses to recognize their heritage and basic human rights; but despite all this, and much more, the Crimean Tatars possess a fierce devotion to what we would call western democratic principles, despite that most are Muslim. A truly fascinating (and exasperating) film on what the quest for ethnic freedom and independence re-e-ally looks like.”
