This is Apo W. Bazidi.
I know him mainly as the brother of the owner of a restaurant/bar I frequent who sometimes serves me drinks.
What I didn't know is that he is also a filmmaker whose movie 'Resistance Is Life' was an offiicial selection of SF DocFest, among others.
Subtitled, “How Could We Live Without a Homeland” , it tells the story of Evlin, “an 8-year old girl who escaped with her family from their village in Kobane, Syria in September 2014” fleeing from ISIS.
It screens at the Roxie Theater this Sunday, June 11 at 9:30 p.m. And again on Monday, June 12 at 7:15 p.m.
