A woman looks concerned, she is looking towards another person in the foreground.

Dying to Divorce

More than one in three Turkish women have experienced domestic violence.

The number of femicides is rising. Ipek, a courageous lawyer, is determined to prevent murders by putting abusive partners behind bars. Alongside activists, she fights to get justice for two survivors of horrific violence, against a backdrop of political upheaval.

Filmed over 5 years, the award-winning Dying to Divorce takes viewers into the heart of Turkey's gender-based violence crisis and the recent political events that have eroded democratic freedoms. Through intimately shot stories, the film gives a unique perspective on the struggle to be an independent woman in modern Turkey.

Content warning: domestic violence and suicide.

Workshop

The film will be followed by a special free trauma workshop run by Ruth Eliot. https://www.rutheliot.com/

Ülkedeki artan siyasi çalkantılara rağmen, Avukat İpek Bozkurt kadına karşı cinayetleri önlemek için cesurca savaşıyor. Film, bir grup aktivistle birlikte, İpeğin, eşlerinden gördükleri korkunç saldırılardan sağa çıkan Arzu ve Kübra için verdiği adalet mücadelesine odaklanıyor.

Beş yılı aşkın bir sürede çekilen “Ölümüne Boşanmak/Dying to Divorce”, izleyicileri Türkiye’nin toplumsal cinsiyete dayalı şiddet krizi ve toplumun demokratik özgürlüğünü ciddi şekilde sarsan siyasi olaylarin kalbine götürüyor. Film, samimi ve kişisel hikayeler aracılığıyla, modern Türkiye'de bağımsız bir kadın olma mücadelesine benzersiz bir bakış açısı kazandırıyor.
