Join us for the Peoples Choice Award Winner of the Toronto Jewish Film Festival 2022 Season.

Official Selection at the prestigious Berlin Film Festival. The plight of the Kurdish people living under Syrian rule is highlighted with a satiric edge in Mano Khalil’s masterful autobiographical film. Sero’s carefree childhood comes to an end on the first day of school when the new Syrian teacher forbids him from speaking Kurdish,and imparts a toxic nationalism and antisemitism that seems at odds with the warm relationship he has with his Jewish neighbours.
