Storyboard Text

  • She told us that the Russians were ruthless and cruel. They wiped out 3/4 of the Circassian population. Calculations have confirmed a loss of 95-97% of the Circassian nation.
  • Women and children were forced to flee the country. Expulsion caused Circassians to migrate to different parts of Europe and Asia. For example, some fled to Turkey, some to Syria, others to Jordan, and so on. 
  • I looked around at my friends. My parents were from Syria, while his were from Jordan. Hers were from Morocco. But we were all Circassian
  • The Circassian culture is disappearing. If you ask any kid in this room, they most likely don't know how to speak the language. In about 20 years, the language might be forgotten altogether. 
  • It felt like the whole room was staring at me - I didn't know the language. 
  • Later that night...
  • Baba... can you teach me how to speak Circassian?
