Le Pacha, ma mère et moiNevine Gertis

Filmmaker Nevine's childhood is all about the Kurdish cause. Her mother, a staunch activist, has defended the Kurdish people all her life, a struggle she herself inherited from her father. Now that her mother is 80 and Nevine is becoming a mom herself, she reflects on this family legacy. Should she too be committed to the cause? Or will the struggle fade with each generation? Can we separate ourselves from our heritage and still give meaning to our roots and help future generations build their identities?
