Dwelved into the mountains between Iran, Irak, Syria and Turkey, Kurdistan stays a mythical territory, with no recognition of any borders whatsoever, and the Kurds are a nation with no land. On those four countries, only two recognize a region under the name “Kurdistan”: Iran, with its “province of Kurdistan”, and Irak with its autonomous region of Kurdistan.
Criss-crossing this land of mountains and tablelands, I met those people from the borders, at the crossing point of the turkish, arabic and persian worlds, with a destiny both tragic and heroic.
