MY SWEET PEPPER LAND

After the fall of Saddam Hussein, two unlikely allies converge in a war-torn Kurdish village at the borders of Iran, Iraq, and Turkey. Both Baran, a former Kurdish independence war hero, and Govend, a beautiful young woman defying tradition by accepting a post at a newly-opened school, are hell-bent on seeing order and civilization restored to their damaged country. Elements of the Western genre combine with the awe-inspiring landscapes in director Hiner Saleem's socially-inflected frontier tale.

Please note: MY SWEET PEPPER LAND is in Kurdish, Arabic and Turkish with English Subtitles, Running Time: 95 Minutes. Not Rated

ALSO PLEASE NOTE: Prior to our presentation of "MY SWEET PEPPER LAND", we will be premiering the San Diego State University short BEACHES AND BEER, underwritten by our Reel Relief and Directors Circle Members.
