When Khalil, an elementary school teacher in Berlin, receives war footage from his Kurdish homeland and thinks he recognizes his sister in the pixilated videos, his life is thrown off course. He tries at all costs to bring his sister to safety and to inform the public about the brutal war. When his existence in Berlin is on the brink, Khalil is forced to ask himself where he belongs.
WHISPERS OF WAR had its world premiere at the 55th Hof International Film Festival and subsequently screened at many other festivals, where it won several awards, including the Fischer Audience Award at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival 2021.
