FILM – (english title : Nothing but earth, drier and drier) Two men are settled in an inhospitable land waiting for a scout to come back. He has gone in search of a new land where life would again be possible. The two teams keep in contact thanks to radio transmitters. The scout regularly gives news, telling his journey and the infinite desert that more and more surrounds him. All day long, the two men stayed behind are waiting for the scout to give news. Unfortunately, the quality of the signal in the radio transmitter is getting bad. Interferences appear until the voice completely disappears. The two men have lost contact with the scout and now face their own responsibility. Divergences appear.

CREDITS – with Mehmet Korkut, Mazlum Adıgüzel & Baver Doğanay. Kurdish translation by Kawa Nemir. Produced by Romain Kronenberg.
