Three months before the couple Hürmüz and Şimuni Diril vanished without a trace, Etna Özbek followed them for her short film Nosema. Hürmüz and Şimuni were among the last Chaldean Catholics in the desolate Turkish mountains. For generations their family lived from herding goats and keeping bees.

MUBI's take

A remarkable work from documentary maker Etna Özbek, Nosema testifies to the disappearance of a couple as well as an ancient community of Chaldean Catholics in the desolate Turkish mountains. It is a bold and devastating reckoning with the impact of war, loss, and trauma.
