The Other Side of Istanbul (2008)

Sobre o filme

Istanbul is something of a European gay Mecca. How is this possible in present day Turkey? Beyond the media, the discussion about Turkey joining the EU and the adoption of an increasingly Western lifestyle, a self-confident Turkish gay community has emerged and is beginning to stand up for its rights. In several episodes the film shows how the protagonists, each in their own way, try to adapt to life in a predominantly homophobic environment, attempting to fight for their rights and the freedom to live their lives as they choose.
