"Journey of Hope"
1988
Directed by Xavier Koller

An impressive tale of human desperation and the incredible sacrifices made in search of hope.  The head of a Kurdish family longs for a better life than he can offer to his wife and seven children in Turkey.  A relative has sent a postcard from Switzerland, gloating about the new life and fortune that he has found there.  Haydar (Necmettin Cobanoglu) decides to sell his livestock and possessions and move his family to Switzerland.  Not having enough money to secure passage for his entire family, he chooses to take his wife and his brightest son, leaving the other children with their grandparents until he can afford to send for them.  So begins the journey toward a new life, or hope.  Heartbreak awaits the three travelers as they are taken advantage of by their own countrymen. The little money that they have is quickly swindled away from them and they must rely on their own resources to make the last leg of the journey, on foot through the Swiss Alps.  Journey of Hope won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film (1991), as well as the Bronze Leopard (Xavier Koller) from the Locarno International Film Festival (1990).
105 minutes.
