|DOCUMENTARY, 72', KURDISH,
WITH TURKISH OR ENGLISH SUBTITLES
Zilfê is dead, Zerê is dead, Meryem is dead, Hadji Düri is dead, Hadji
Feyroz is dead. Who's left to talk to anyway?
In Van they said "let's get you a pair of glasses", I answered,
"What will I look at?"
It's sunset for me. I don't see myself as a part of this world anymore.
I am a poor, dirty, ugly old woman. I've no mind left, no eyes, no teeth.
What am I good for?
The young are full of life. The old are ugly to young eyes. Aren't they?
Death is so close... I see nothing but God Almighty now.
The final destiny is departure... I can't make my grave narrower; it's
narrow as it is.
We'll all be buried, under earth. Arrogance is pointless. We're all sinners.
No really, I've seen nothing of the beauty of the world. Only at my
father's house did I witness beauty.
I went out into the world and it was all poisoned, spoiled completely.
My father had two wives. My stepmother died. They named me after her:
what makes Nazê's life special is not only that it has lasted for over 105
years. Before she was born her father was poisoned; she left the country
with a total stranger to start a totally different life; for decades she
lived as a "stranger" in places that she wouldn't really like
to live in.
