KASH KASH

In a region torn apart by war, migration, mandate and diverse cultural heritage, we discovered an unusual link: the traditional Kash Hamem dove gambling game of the Middle East. The film is a journey from Damascus to Beirut, from roof to roof, through the contrasting microcosms of the players, networked by the dove gambling in the sky. Winner of Caligari Award 2019. Financed by TV-station SWR & funded through MFG Baden-Württemberg.
