Discussion about Sherry Hormann’s 2019 film A Regular Woman

KINO! Film Salon is a monthly online club to discuss films from Germany.
How it works: Each month we choose a German film or series currently available to stream on U.S. platforms, watch it independently, and come together for a hosted conversation with other fans of German film.
In our October session, we will talk about Sherry Hormann’s 2019 film A Regular Woman which explores the devastating circumstances around a real-life Berlin “honour killing” that took place in 2005. Register Almila Bagriacik plays Aynur, a young woman of Turkish-Kurdish descent who breaks from the strictures of her devout family by pursuing love, work, and self-determination. Bagriacik narrates the film as Aynur, after her murder takes place. It’s a startling innovation that incriminates everyone in its caustic, calm retelling of the traumatic events. A shockingly blunt indictment of religious misogyny, A Regular Woman is a visually striking and deeply sad exploration of how easily family and autonomy can unravel in the face of blithe dogma and unexamined loyalties.
