The famous Kurdish poet, Mohamad Omar Osman, left his country in search for peace of mind. He is known as The General of Autumn, after the title of his most well known poem. Omar Osman ended up in a small village near Malmö in Sweden, where he found out that harmony is an illusion for man.
Omar Osman’s nihilistic view on society is being strengthened by his migration experience. After comparing both Swedish and Kurdish social structures, he concludes: ‘nothing is in harmony with the natural spirit of mankind’.
An intimate portrait of a desolate poet.
