A work of concise, effortless beauty on war and its losses. The term “poetic” is often a cop-out for films lacking in dramaturgy, but here the distilled poeticism is incendiary, burning slow as it goes down. Kurds and their struggle for independence do not get much air time today, so it’s double important to glance within the ordinary kurds’ humanity as they are bombed.
Meteors (Meteorlar), 2017
