My Small Land
Sarya lives between three worlds: Having fled from Turkey to Japan, her small family tries to maintain their Kurdish traditions. On the other hand, Sarya, who arrived when she was five, feels at home in Japan. But then, the family loses its refugee-status. Life becomes unpredictable and their days in Japan seem numbered. A haunting story about the balancing act of finding your place in the world.
My Small Land
Unik lagi menyedihkan. Persebrangan ras yang kontras antara dua bangsa bermata lebar dan sipit (meski sama-sama rumpun Asia), ditengah situasi konflik melanda imigran, My Small Land dengan bertuturnya yang sangat sederhana dan melankolis ajaibnya bisa menjerat pemirsa berkat ekspresi Sarya yang tak muluk-muluk namun pancaran sakit batinnya sungguh luar biasa sekali. Menata dan memulai hidup baru di negeri orang tanpa melupakan identitas leluhurnya dengan budaya, bahasa dan kebiasaan baru (lihat betapa bedanya cara mereka duduk saat makan di lesehan) senyata perbedaan pada tempat mereka tinggal. Namun semuanya bakal disama-ratakan oleh perkataan Ayah pada adik Sarya yang paling kecil, "Batu kurdi, batu jepang, batu dimanapun semuanya sama." Kita sama-sama manusia, hanya cara kita "menjalani hidup yang berbeda." Entah berapa kali film ini menggetarkan hati. Menyedihkan tapi juga sebagai penyemangat agar tetap selalu bersyukur.
Hello and welcome to the seventh row podcast. I am Orla Smith and I'll be introducing this very short bonus episode to you. This episode is a short review of the Japanese film my small land directed by Emma Kawada. And it's actually an excerpt from an episode that we did earlier in the year about the 2022 Berlin Film Festival where this was one of our absolute favorite films, we really fell for it. And since then, we've kind of been worried that it would get completely lost and not find distribution. And so we were really delighted to hear about the new distribution company, Momo films which distributes Japanese films to Canada. And they picked up this film and they have been screening it across Canada, and that run is set to end soon. Or more accurately, it's only just beginning, but it won't last very long to in Toronto at the TIFF Bell Lightbox it will be playing on November 9 and the 16th in Vancouver at the cinema tech will be playing on November 4 to the seventh. And in Charlottetown Pei will be playing November 7 and eighth. And in Montreal Cinemathque. It will be playing from the 21st to the 27th. So if you can see it, do you see my small land? If you can't see it, this is still a spoiler free review. And hopefully it will convince you that this is a film worth waiting for. What you're going to hear in this episode is my voice or the Smith, executive editor of Seventh Row and my co host, Alex Heeney, the editor in chief of Seventh Row. Enjoy.
My small land, which is directed by Emma Kawada, who is a protege of Kore-eda. And you can definitely see that in the film, that she is influenced by him. But it's it's a very interesting story, because it is set in Japan, but it's the story of a Kurdish refugee Sarya, who is 17. And who has been in Japan, most of her life, she speaks Japanese fluently, and as occurred, she doesn't really have a homeland, like she was born in Turkey, but she doesn't remember it and, and, you know, the Kurds were colonized. And basically, you know, the land where they live was divided up into other countries. And so, like there is no Kurdish territory, per se. And she also doesn't really have a connection to Turkey, because she doesn't remember it.
She she does explain it to her her boyfriend later in the film. But he hasn't even like heard of Kurds, and she wants sort of the simplicity of just being like German, rather than having this really complicated identity that like, makes her feel rootless, like in any place. That was the end of our episode, our small bonus episode and my small land.
The Cinematheque acknowledges that Vancouver is located on the unceded lands of the Coast Salish peoples, including the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
"Father: There are many rocks where I was bornBoy: Like hereFather: Yes, there is nothing else to do in the villages except play with The stones. These stones and Kurdish stones are the same,There is no difference!!"Kurdistan is a land between Syria, Turkey, Iran and Iraq. Although Kurdistan is divided into four parts, but it is 1 land for us and we are proud to be Kurds.We are about 40 million Kurds in the world. One day we will become a country and we will get our rights back from the neighboring countries,Most people in the countries around us say it's like a dream, and I say you are right, but rest assured that one day dreams will come true.
The fact is, there is no North Carolina law that establishes a universal set of criteria for what counts as a farm. Five hundred acres in Hyde County? Call it a farm. Ten raised beds on an urban lot? Call it a farm and raise your veggies. Neither the State of North Carolina nor the federal government requires you to get any type of license or certification or approval to identify your land as a farm.
Depreciation is an annual tax deduction that allows small businesses to recover the cost or other basis of certain property over the time they use the property. It is an allowance for the wear and tear, deterioration or obsolescence of the property.
Small businesses can depreciate machinery, equipment, buildings, vehicles, and furniture. They cannot claim depreciation on personal property. If a business uses an asset, such as a car, for business or investment and personal purposes, the business owner can depreciate only the business or investment use portion. Land is never depreciable, although buildings and certain land improvements may be.
In some cases, their use has resulted in noise and nuisance complaints from park visitors, park visitor safety concerns, and one documented incident in which park wildlife were harassed. Small drones have crashed in geysers in Yellowstone National Park, attempted to land on the features of Mount Rushmore National Memorial, been lost over the edge of the Grand Canyon, and been stopped from flying in Prohibited Airspace over the Mall in Washington DC.
Policy Memorandum 14-05, released by the National Park Service (NPS) director in June 2014, directed each superintendent to use the authority under 36 CFR 1.5 to prohibit the launching, landing, or operation of unmanned aircraft, subject to the certain conditions and exceptions set forth in the memo. This is still in force with a very few exceptions.
This action applies to the launching, landing, and operation of unmanned aircraft on lands and waters administered by the NPS. Jurisdiction by the NPS ends at the park boundary. The policy memorandum does not modify any requirement imposed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the use or operation of unmanned aircraft in the National Airspace System.
Why did the NPS restrict unmanned aircraft?The National Park Service embraces many activities in national parks because they enhance visitor experiences with the iconic natural, historic and cultural landscapes in our care. However, due to serious concerns about the negative impact that flying unmanned aircraft can have for safety of visitors, staff, and wildlife, they have been restricted in all but a few parks.
If I am flying my unmanned aircraft in the national airspace and do not take off, land, or operate from NPS lands and waters, is there anything the park could do to stop me?Unless an unmanned aircraft pilot obtains special permission through the FAA, use of unmanned aircraft must remain line of sight. In addition, although they do not directly address unmanned aircraft, the following existing 36 CFR sections may apply under certain circumstances.
Can I launch and land my unmanned aircraft outside the park boundary?The NPS has no authority outside park boundaries; the unmanned aircraft operator would have to get the permission of the landowner.
I would like to fly my small unmanned aircraft in a park for recreation. Are there any options available?Check the park website to see if it is an allowed activity at the park. If not, check with the park superintendent to see if an area can be designated within the park, and/or a special use permit can be obtained.
How are other land management agencies handling unmanned aircraft?We cannot speak to policies, rules and regulations that affect unmanned aircraft use at other federal agencies and recommend you contact those agencies directly. Links to other agency websites may be found at
