    Subject

    The script started out from a basic fact of Kurdish life: the first generation of Kurdish refugees, who were not very numerous, could not return to their homeland so their families took charge of finding them a wife. When a girl was agreed upon, she was “dispatched” with a guarantee of her good morals and virginity. These types of marriage were known ironically as “postal marriages”. Nowadays, the camcorder has revolutionized the practice and we talk about “video marriages”.
