Living with Leviathan / Leviathan’la Yaşamak

Turkey, 2013, Colour, 12 min

"Because when ordinary people who share funny cat videos on the social media start to spread information about what to do in case of being taken into custody, it's called state terrorism." This is a personal story about a nationwide uprising, the Occupy Gezi movement in Turkey, in the summer of 2013. More of an open letter than a documentary, this movie tries to show how Turkish youth say "No!" to the despotic regime and the police brutality.
