Join us for the regional premier and unreleased screening of “The Many Lives of Kojin” hosted by ReelQ. This program includes an exclusive interview with director Diako Yazdani.

With a great sense of humor, Filmmaker Diako Yazdani, a political refugee in France, returns to see his family in Iraqi Kurdistan and introduces them to Kojin, a young 23-year-old homosexual who seeks to exist in a society where he seems unable to find his place. A look at the endless struggle of a minority within a minority.

Film synopsis: Diako Yazdani, an Iranian Kurd and political refugee in France, goes to Irak where accompanied by Kojin, a 23-year-old gay friend, he confronts his devout family, friends and other members of the Kurdish community with their prejudices on homosexuality. Through humor and poetry, the director presents a powerful portrait where encounters between people are an invitation to a universal reflection on being different.
