Here is more info on this screening:

A is for Aye-Aye: An Abecedarian Adventure – Augusta Palmer (Brooklyn, New York)   Iris, a curious, precocious and somewhat jaded nine-year-old New Yorker, is on a quest to find a space to exercise her imagination in the real world.  Wandering down Fifth Avenue, she spies the New York Public Library, walks through its doors, and then finds her way to the wondrous Picture Collection, an archive of over a million images. As she pulls a few images from the files, an engraving of an aye-aye suddenly springs to life and takes Iris - and the audience - on a transformative, animated journey. 2016; 14 min. With an introduction and Q+A session with Director Augusta Palmer!

Kurdistan-Kurdistan – Bulent Gunduz (Antony, France)  A sensitive feature film about the tension between tradition and modernity, and the difficulty of returning home.  Delil Dilanar, a singer of traditional Kurdish songs, has continued to keep alive a rich and complex musical style known as dengbej.  However, after 20 years of exile in Europe, he finds that his heart hasn’t followed him. During a concert in New York, he announces his return to his roots.  Once he finds himself back in Kurdistan, he falls into a deep depression, and he must turn to his old music master to find his way forward. In Kurdish, subtitled. 98 min.  2015. With a Special Musical Performance by Delil Dilanar!
