Ağrı ve Dağ

Agri and the Mountain | Agri ve Dag | Boston Turkish Film Festival

In a small remote village at the skirts of Mount Ararat, nine-year-old Rodja wakes up to a blustery winter morning. As she gets ready for school, men work in the beautiful, windswept landscape, and women prepare dough for bread. This is a glimpse into the life of one child in a place where time seems to stand still.
