Video: You Are Turkish (2010)

‘You ARE Turkish’ is a multimedia piece that tries to communicate how it felt to be Kurdish in Turkey during the 80s and the 90s. It tells the stories of torture, forced migration and a banned language. It is photographed in south east Turkey, the predominantly Kurdish region, and in northern Iraq where the famous Mahmour refugee camp is located. The interviews with people who lived through the atrocities committed by the Turkish Military add a personal commentary to this piece about the plight of a people.
