Orkan Bayram

Aram and Mihemed are two teenage broth­ers who strug­gle to earn a living for the family by  col­lect­ing recy­cling paper. Their father lost a leg in a ter­ror­ist attack while work­ing for the Amer­i­can army. The boys cruise the streets and high­ways of the now blos­som­ing city of Hewlêr (Arbil) in Kur­dis­tan, Iraq. Depict­ing their every­day strug­gle to make ends meet inter­ject­ed with snap­shots from the “men’s world”, the camera is a bystander in the plight of these wound­ed men – men, these boys are to become.  

Fol­low­ing the lives of two teenage broth­ers in a Kur­dish city of North­ern Iraq, the doc­u­men­tary film BRîN­DARIM  - I AM WOUNDED  depicts the rou­tine of these boys forced to become men in a wound­ed soci­ety. 

This film will be screened simul­ta­ne­ous­ly at Con­flic­to­ri­um as part of our #Junction_Ahmedabad, fol­lowed by a shared discussion.
