Commendation of the Ecumenical Jury, Yerevan 2008

Set while America is ready to attack Iraq, the film is telling a love story between Ayca living in Istanbul and Ali from North Iraq. Ayca decides to meet Ali again. This road movie shows with beautiful pictures an original way of telling love by video. Very well played by the actress, it describes the courage, the struggle and the strong hope of a loving woman. By showing the difficulties Ayca has to overcome to reach her beloved one the director criticizes the cruel reality that human beings are always victims when frontiers become walls in times of war or conflict between countries.
