About the Film
Winner - Atlanta Film Festival Jury Prize - Best Documentary Short
Using a witty first-person documentary style, the story begins as the filmmaker Therese Shechter travels to Turkey to interview young Turkish women for a documentary on feminism. Instead, she becomes fascinated with Turkish men. And they, in turn, are fascinated with her. The film is a twisted and entertaining travelogue that asks important questions about identity, sexuality and the nature of female power. And it's all true.

*Unfortunately, I won't be there because it was scheduled in the middle of my trip to Turkey (ironic, no?) but I'll have someone there to answer questions on my behalf. Very sorry to be missing it, but you shouldn't!!
