Dada Saltana has had a keen interest in cinema since childhood. She tries to achieve her goals, but her circumstances are stacked against her. Despite the odds, Dada Sultana does not give up.

Dada Saltaneh is one of twelve films picked by the programmers of the fifth edition of the New York Kurdish Film and Cultural Festival as part of a special feature on e-flux Video & Film, streaming for two weeks from October 7–21 and accompanied by a conversation between the festival’s founder Xeyal Qertel and e-flux’s Lukas Brasiskis. See the full program here.

The program is part of the series Festival Forum on e-flux Video & Film, presenting collaborations with established and emerging moving-image festivals from around the world.
