In the heart of the turmoiled South-East of Turkey, a hidden gem withstands time and violence. Life today in Hasankeyf is fading away rapidly, with the construction of a dam on the Tigris River. This flooding will erase people, their belongings, the river ecosystem, the archeology, the balance of a rural lifestyle that flows in the veins of humankind. It will displace the elders and forcibly shape the dreams of younger citizens. Arab and Kurdish families share the epic memories and magic landscapes of Hasankeyf with their children.
