SIBEL : Critique cinématographique

En cette période de recherches consacrée à la Turquie, sous tous ces aspects, qu’ils soient sociaux, politiques, juridiques, la culture demeure aussi un point fort. Notre attention s’est alors portée sur le long métrage « Sibel » sorti en 2019, issu d’une co- réalisation entre Çagla Zencirci et Guillaume Giovanetti.

Leyla Zana, tireless Kurdish activist

As the first Kurdish woman elected to the Turkish Parliament, Leyla Zana has grown from a poorly educated, forcibly married girl to a symbol of courage and hope for millions of Kurds. Threats, torture or prison, nothing has stopped her commitment to the recognition of Kurdish identity and unity between the Turkish and Kurdish peoples ».

Gezi Park ou les prémisses d’une revendication démocratique

Les événements de Gezi Park survenus en 2013 en Turquie sont source, aujourd’hui encore, d’un retentissement puissant.

EU-Turkey relations at standstills

875,000 people, almost a third of the 3 million people residing in north-west of Syria, have now been displaced since December 1st, adding to the 180,000 Syrian civilians already displaced from northern Syria to Raqqa and Hasakeh governorates, in the aftermath of the third Turkish cross-border operations in northeastern Syria from October to November 2019, despite multiple ceasefires. The situation in northern Syria has been highly critical, from the east to the west part since the beginning of two military operations. Among the continuing air and ground-based strikes, the deteriorating food security, the inflation in food prices caused by the closure of main roads of assistance coupled with the lack of shelters and the ongoing winterization, the situation is “likely to turn catastrophic” according to multiple UN-led organizations.

Fact sheet

The famous movie « Isle of dogs » is based on a real Turkish story that, more than opening a window on the history of Istanbul, reflects the contradictions of the Turkish history. Going from the impact of the « orientalism » to the « modernity at stake », this fact sheet is a must read, and a way to shine in society.
