World Premiere: 2023 Göteborg Film Festival
by HUSSEIN HASSAN (DE/KRG-IQ 2022, 97`)
THE RAIN BRIDE explores a fight held not only on the frontlines but also within communities and families, highlighting one woman's struggle for a self-determined life. Intertwining the past and present through the use of traditional storytelling, music and dance, the film reflects both the repetitive history of war in Kurdistan and the growing societal resistance to participate in it in the present.
