More than one in three Turkish women have experienced domestic abuse and the number of femicides is rising. But some Turkish women are fighting back.
Filmed over 5 years, this compelling film takes viewers into the heart of Turkey's gender-based violence crisis and the political events that have severely eroded democratic freedoms. Through intimately shot personal stories, the film gives a unique perspective on the struggle to be an independent woman in modern Turkey.
Screening as part of 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, which runs from 25 November to 10 December 2021.
In English and Turkish with English subtitles.
Running time: 1h42, including ads and trailers.
