Turkey 2010 | 100 min | OV with english and german s.t. | Colour |

In the first half of the 1990’s, on those days when intense skirmish between the Kurdish guerillas and the Turkish government took place, a handful of young journalists were struggling to proclaim the ongoing violations of human rights to the world. In those days of increasing pressure, the office staff fights both to survive and to reveal the facts. Journalism is no longer a profession, but a a matter of life or death for them.

This event is presented in cooperation with Freundeskreis Filmfest Hamburg e.V.
