Bircan is a documentary filmmaker based between Scotland and Turkey.

​In 2019, she directed her debut creative documentary, 'My Name is Anik,' through Bridging the Gap program at the Scottish Documentary Institute. The film has been selected for multiple BAFTA and Oscar-Qualifying festivals.

This beautiful short follows Bircan as she has decided to learn Kurdish, her once-forbidden mothertongue, with all the words her grandmother has forgotten and all the stories that have remained unspoken.

The GRAMNet/Bemis film series is honoured to welcome Bircan to the CCA for a post-screening discussion, exploring themes of heritage, language, family, and connection.
