a (orientalist white upper middle class) hipster’s guide to feminism in turkey

We went to Turkey to make a documentary about the common themes in #yesallwomen and #sendeanlat movements. Since we came back to the US in July 2015, a lot has changed in Turkey. We don’t take ourselves to seriously but recent events in Turkey have been sobering. The trailer shows how we started and partially how things have continued in Turkey since we left. The complete documentarty will come out in March 2016.

 

#yesallwomen ve #sendeanlat hareketleriyle ilgileniyoruz. Bu yüzden belgesel yapmak üzere Türkiye’ye gittik. Temmuz 2015’te ABD’ye döndükten sonra Türkiye’de durumlar çok değişti. Biz ciddi bir iş yaptığımız iddiasında değiliz. Fakat Türkiye’de yaşananlar vicdan muhasebesi gerektiren, çok ciddi olaylardır. Bu klip nasıl başladığımızı ve takiben Türkiye’de olayların nasıl devam ettiğini kısmen sunmaktadır. Belgeselimiz Mart 2016 çıkacak.

Kesişimsellik, ulusötesicilik ve kaynaştırma kavramlarının önemli olduğuna inanıyoruz. Amacımız gündemi belirlemek veya belli görüşleri yaymak değil, birbirleri ile örtüşen bu feminist hareketleri inceleyen bir belgesel yapmaktır. Görüşünüz ne olursa olsun, bizimle paylaşmanızı isteriz.

#YesAllWomen

#YesAllWomen, like #sendeanlat, began after an act of unspeakable violence. Elliot Rodger, a lapsed student at UC Santa Barbara, went on a rampage, killing 6 and injuring 14 before committing suicide. He began at his apartment, stabbing 3 men to death. He then drove towards a UC Santa Barbara sorority house, shooting at the women […]

#Sendeanlat

#Sendeanlat means “You tell your story too.” It became the most popular hashtag in Turkey after the brutal assault and murder of Ozgecan Aslan. Ozgecan was a 20 year-old woman from Mersin, a city in southeast Turkey near the sea. She was studying psychology in Tarsus, a neighboring town. On the day of the murder, […]
