The legendary, rebellious, unyielding and revolutionary Kurdish woman with red hair… Sakine Cansız, whom we hear much but know less about, has left a period of her life into the pages of history with her three-volume book “My Whole Life Was A Struggle‘. History is never dust-laden shelves! History is essentially every second we live. She was a revolutionary believing the history to be alive… As a loyalty to her memory, it is a heaviest and most honorable responsibility of ours to convey her life to new generations. In the SARA – “MY WHOLE LIFE WAS A STRUGGLE” documentary, Sakine is being told about by herself, her parents and siblings, and mostly by her comrades…“
