Little Bride

The omnipresent household violence against women remains a taboo subject among the Turkish community in Germany. This documentary by Dobrucki perfectly reflects the atmosphere of danger and uncertainty that affects the protagonist of the film. At the age of thirteen she entered into marriage with a much older cousin and was sent by her family to live with him in Germany. The marriage turned into a nightmare. Beaten and humiliated, she eventually resolves to run away – as far from her home as possible. Even today she has to live in hiding from her husband’s family, for whom her escape is seen as disgrace and betrayal. After all she has suffered, will she be able to pick up the shredded pieces of her reality into a new whole? The film was produced as part of the ‘Jerusalem – Warsaw – Cologne. The Triangle Dialogue’ programme conducted by Wajda Studio (previously Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing), the ifs International Film School in Cologne, and the Sam Spiegel Film School from Jerusalem, and with the support of the Polish Film Institute and the Nordrhein Westfalen Film Foundation (NRW) as well as the Polish German Co-operation Foundation and the Polish Institute in Israel.
