“Commemorating a rare female leader from a time and place where women were mostly regarded as chattel, the sweeping patriotic epic “Kurmanjan Datka Queen of the Mountains” spans the long life (1811-1907) of a heroine who put the personal good of her people before her private hopes. With its breathtaking landscapes, dazzling cinematography, bloody battles and unique cultural traditions, Sadyk Sher-Niyaz’s directing debut provides a fetching piece of exotica for festival audiences.” –  (
