18 December is International Migrants Day. Let’s mark this day together. We kindly invite you to attend the online screening of “Omar and Us” movie by Maryna Er Gorbach, which we will conduct under the IOM Global Migration Film Festival.
Ismet is a Turkish soldier, who was on duty at the border as a Commander of the Coast Guard and recently got retired. Now as a civilian, he struggles to communicate with his family and people surrounding him. His only son left to the U.S. And now Ismet’s wife wants to join their son, too. After suddenly becoming neighbours with two refugees (Omar and Maria) and the humane experience he has to live through, Ismet faces his prejudices.
The film’s director, Maryna Er Gorbach, is a graduate of the Karpenko-Kary Kyiv National University of Theater, Cinema and Television, who lives and works in Turkey.
Professional actors Taj Sher Yakub and Hala Alsayasneh, who starred as Omar and Maria, are themselves refugees from Syria.
“Omar and Us” movie was awarded at film festivals in Turkey, France, Germany, Portugal, Israel, India, Argentina, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland and the United States.
