Portobello Pop Up Cinema presents: I Flew You Stayed

A Kurdish documentary called "Ez Firiyam Tu Mayi Li Ci" (I Flew You Stayed) will be screened at Portobello Cinema on 24th July at 7.30 as a part of the Transit Festival. 

The documentary was directed by Mizgin Müjde Arslan and was awarded Best Documentary of Year by the Film Critics Association of Turkey. The film tells of a woman who travels from Istanbul (Turkey) to Makhmur Refugee Camp (Iraq) to look for the grave of her guerrilla fighter father, whom she had never met. The director was detained before the premiere at the Istanbul Film Festival and was released just after prosecutor watched the whole film. In this sense, the film was premiered in a police station. Following a very well-attended premiere, the film has been screened at many festivals, with screenings still continuing.

The film has been awarded Best Documentary at the Amed Film Festival, Jury Special Award at the Vangolu Film Festival, Mention Award at Boston Documentary Festival and has been awarded Mirella Galetti Prize (Italy) very recently. 

The Kurdish documentary I Flew You Stayed will be screened with English subtitles at one of London's last independent cinemas, The Portobello at 7.30 on 24th July.
