ALIAS KURBAN SAID attempts to unravel the identity of Kurban Saïd, a pseudonym for the author of a popular novel from the late-1930s. A recent sensational re-discovery with cult status, Saïd's "Ali and Nino" chronicles an affair between a woman and a man of different religious beliefs and their doomed relationship. But who, exactly, is Kurban Saïd? Dutch filmmaker Jos de Putter traveled the world interviewing various interested parties, each with their own definitive belief in the story-behind-the-story. The pursuit is more important than the goal when the "truth" is as heavily contested as it is dubious.
