A STRUGGLE FOR HOME and BEYOND RECOGNITION Documentary Film Screenings
A STRUGGLE FOR HOME: The Crimean Tatars
Directed by Christina Paschyn
Ukraine, Qatar / 2015 / 45mins / DC Premiere

For hundreds of years, Crimea was home to the Crimean Tatars, a Muslim-Turkic people. When the Soviet Union collapsed, they thought they would finally be free and safe in their homeland. But in 2014 those dreams were dashed: Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded and re-annexed the peninsula. This film features interviews with Crimean residents, activists, historians and the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, Mustafa Dzhemilev, as well as the Russian Prime Minister of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov.  It is a story of betrayal, courage and, above all, hope. For despite all that they have faced, the Crimean Tatars are still not willing to give up their fight for freedom.

BEYOND RECOGNITION
Directed by Michelle Grace Steinberg
(USA/2015/24:20mins) DC Premiere

After decades struggling to protect her ancestors burial places, now engulfed by San Franciscos sprawl, a Native woman from a non-federally recognized tribe and her allies occupy a sacred site to prevent its desecration.
