Vatan - The Crimean Tatars

Who are the Crimean Tatars? What were they expecting from Ukraine? What's next after Russian annexation? With past and present approaches from 2011 and 2014, this unique document shows the angers and hopes of the Crimean Tatars, a historically damaged and unacknowledged nation.

Who are the Crimean Tatars?

Deported en masse by Stalin in 1944 with the false accusation of general collaboration with the nazi occupants, the tatars couldn't return to Crimea until the fall of the USSR.

As from the 1990s, the tatars have been fighting for the restitution of their national and language rights, as well as for their historical lands and proprieties in the Crimean peninsula. An autonomous government not very sensible to their claims has kept their struggle in full force.

The recent events in the peninsula severely kicked the hopes of a people that never resigns the fight for its rights. For the Crimean Tatars, future perspectives have grown sensibly worse in a very short time. Their historical leader, Mustafa Jemilev, as well as the leader of there council, Refat Chubarov, are both banned entering Crimean land. The commemoration of the 70th anniversary of their deportation was also banned and prosecuted. They are being dispossessed of the few lands they had so far managed to get back, etc.

What's the film about

Shot in two different moments (2011 and 2014), the film addresses the story, situation, angers and future perspectives of the Crimean Tatars.

Old grandparents who survived deportation and exile, youngters born in exile and returned to Crimea and representatives of the cultural, academical and political spheres put together a polyphonic, unique and valuable testimony of a historical injustice that is about to be repeated.

Why are we looking for your help

We will use your pledges to edit the raw material. Both the new, recorded by a Crimean Tatar broadcast team after the Russian annexation, and the old, shot in 2011, when none of the recent events seemed to be possible.

Calendar

The film will be ready in late autumn and will be sent before Christmas.

    Benvolguda Xicranda,

    El muntatge del documental va quedar paralitzat per segona vegada. El fet que això coincidís amb problemes personals greus (operacions d'urgència al meu fill petit) va retardar la represa molt més del que hauria volgut. Compto, ara sí, donar el projecte per enllestit abans de final d'any. Moltes gràcies per la paciència i per l'ajuda.

    Benvolgut Ernest,
    Haig de dir-te que la cosa avança, ara sí, Després d'un temps en què m'he vist obligat a abandonar el projecte per motius personals i familiars, ara ja tenim tota la teca traduïda i subtitulada i ens queda el muntatge estricte. Per tant, i sense voler pecar d'optimista, compto que el documental estarà enllestit abans de l'estiu. Us agraeixo molt a tots la paciència. Ho tirarem endavant!

    Hola,

    Benvolguda Mercè, per problemes personals he hagut de retardar la producció del documental un parell de mesos. Compto que podré enviar-vos les recompenses cap al març. Disculpa les molèsties i la tardança en respondre't.

    No sé si m'he perdut alguna cosa, però crec que amb la meva col·laboració podia disposar d'un dvd del documental i no l'he rebut. És així?

    Doncs em temo que no… Sempre duren quaranta dies. No vaig ser gaire hàbil començant a final de juliol, ho reconec. Espero arribar a l'import!

    És possible allargar el temps del Verkami? La idea em sembla molt bona però fins avui no n'havia sentit a parlar.

#02 / Documental enllestit!

Després de molts esforços i de retards infinits, hem enllestit el documental. Si no has rebut el missatge de correu electrònic per veure'l en línia, fes-nos-ho saber. Salut!

#01 / Ens hem posat a treballar

Problemes personals m'han impedit dedicar-me al projecte segons el calendari previst, de manera que ho hem hagut de retardar tot. Ara sí, però, que estem treballant en les transcripcions i de seguida ens posarem a muntar el documental.
Us agraeixo molt la paciència i espero poder-vos enviar les recompenses cap al març.
