F Rated Film
Friday 24th May 2024 - Thursday 30th May 2024

Dir. Milena Aboyan, Germany, 2023, 110 mins. In German/Kurdish with English subtitles. Cast. Bayan Layla, Hadnet Tesfai, Derya Durmaz.

Elaha follows a young Kurdish-German woman torn between her love for her family and her personal aspirations. In the build up to her marriage, Elaha investigates the possibility of hymen reconstruction to cover up the fact that she is no longer a virgin - a state of 'honour' considered essential by her German-Kurdish community and, more specifically, by her strict mother. Aboyan’s feature debut is a compelling character portrait and feminist journey of identity and self-discovery, powered by Layla’s astonishing performance which is full of exuberance and empathy.
