Dersim. Officially, Tunceli. It is a city that has never compromised with the state and the predominating establishment, since the early Republican period. It is a city that is distant to the dominant religion, the dominant language and culture. It has a different language, religion, culture and even its name is different... Distant has aimed to narrate, with all its difference and distance, a geographical location, which makes everyone hesitate about its name. Distant has been a story that has observed and documented the daily life and culture in a region under the shade of war, and the vague traces of war written on the walls.
