Aleksandr Kosteckij. The Lake.

I am eager for the day this gets a US release. Though I am not Armenian, my mother’s family were Greeks from Smyrna, I’ve grown up hearing the stories of our family and what happened to them there. Their home was burned, brothers and sons sent to prison camps or murdered, and family displaced during this period of time. The stories of the Armenian and Greek genocide are seldom shared or even acknowledged by the rest of the world.


Mardin, 1915: one night, the Turkish police round up all the Armenian men in the city, including the young blacksmith, Nazaret Manoogian, who is separated from his family. Years later, after managing to survive the horrors of the genocide, he hears that his two daugthers are also still alive. He becomes fixated on the idea of finding them and sets off to track them down. His search takes him from the Mesopotamian deserts and Havana to the barren and desolate prairies of North Dakota. On this odyssey, he encounters a range of very different people: angelic and kind-hearted characters, but also the devil incarnate.

The Cut, directed by Turkish-German Fatih Akin, and starring Tahar Rahim, will premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

a few hairs by d. marvi
my relationship with my unibrow is tempestuous. some days i hide it away, plucking out each hair with hatred. others, i smooth it down lovingly with rosewater and feed it coconut oil at night to hasten it’s growth. these hairs are one of the many ways i’m navigating my own body while i navigate the liminal space of diaspora. my unibrow evokes both the racial privileged of the homeland and the racial alienation of the hostland. painting my unibrow gold can be seen as an act of beautification and self-acceptance. conversely, it can be seen as self-orientalization, or, making a prominent physical sign of my racial “otherness” even more so. or, simply, it could be an innocent whimsy. i choose to keep the meaning of this as ambiguous as possible, to mimic my own fluid, love-hate relationship with my unibrow.
