35th International Film Festival Warsaw

11.10.2019 to 20.10.2019


Omar and Us

The contact with two Syrian refugees leads a retired Turkish police commander to gradually reconsider his prejudices. The film shows that people can help each other despite cultural, religious and national differences.  There’s no „us and them” – we are one.

The jury finds particularly important that two Syrians are played by real refugees, therefore they couldn’t attend the Warsaw Film Festival. What is more – this Turkish film assumes specific value of the actual historical moment for the region.
