About the Film
Heskif is a documentary on Hasankeyf, a district of the Batman province of Turkey, with a 12,000-year history, which was flooded and destroyed as part of the construction of the Ilısu Dam. In addition to the loss of historical heritage, the film depicts and documents the experiences and stories of the people who lost their villages, homes and memories, showing the district before and after the holding of water and flooding of the land.
