An old man is haunted at a movie theater where he works as a janitor. He mops and cleans, but cannot get rid of a stain.

Pel'e (Stain) 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.
