Documentary film – Tekoşer. Il partigiano Orso

“Tekoşer. Il partigiano Orso” (Tekoşer. Partisan Orso) is a documentary film about the life of YPG fighter Lorenzo Orsetti.

The documentary, as the director said himself, “is strongly inspired by the writings by Lorenzo Orsetti. Although it was not conceived as a documentary on the Rojava revolution and the conflict in Syria, Tekoşer does not fail to leave an important fresco on the characteristics of that conflict and of the revolutionary project in Rojava. But in the narrative development, other levels gradually emerge, such as the meaning of being partisans today, and finally, the problem of the purpose and meaning of life itself.”

The documentary has been realised with the collaboration of Fondazione Archivio Audiovisivo del Movimento Operaio e Democratico.

Our friend Lorenzo Orsetti (Tekoşer Piling) lost his life in Baghouz on March 18 2019 during the battle against ISIS mercenaries. His body reached his hometown Florence on June 15 2019 and a funeral was held on June 24. Orsetti, 33, came to Rojava in 2017.
