Memories on Stone

Kurdish childhood friends Hussein (37) and Alan (40) direct and produce a film about the genocide of Kurdish people in Iraq, during the Anfal campaign in 1988. They learn that, to achieve veracity by the means of cinema and to face their own identity, it’s worth putting everything on the line – even their own life.

Our opening gala film, is a joint production of Iran, Iraqi Kurdistan and Germany and

has been selected to represent Iraq as the official submission for the 88th Academy

Awards (Oscars) for the Best Foreign-Language Film.
