Although that contamination doesn’t catch our eyes, fishermen are witnesses for this, moreover they catch the contamination with their fishnets. They don’t know if the annihilation of the species depends on this pollution, but there’s a fact that both polluted seas and radars which they call technology, can’t find the fish; become a nightmare for fishermen whose job has been always so hard. Despite all obstacles, fishermen who try live on by their paths with patience and obstinacy, stick their fishnets with their hearts and souls, by the hope of the bgeautiful days to come. This documentary is about fishermen’s lives, wishes, complains, workings, hardships which they face and most importantly how we contaminate our seas.
Playing House (Evcilik) by Bingöl Elmas (2012, 56 min.). In almost every corner of the world, children ‘play house’ which is fictionalized by their families and traditions. This film deals with the early marriage problem which most people think is in the past, but still hurts many lives. The film tells the story of four characters who married early and suffered the serious consequences of early marriage. According to studies, even today, 50 percent of all marriages in Turkey are early marriages. Early marriages don't happen in one specific region or country. It is a problem of all regions and countries. International treaties regard early marriages as child abuse, a human rights violation and a public health issue. One character in the film says: “Was it marriage? Were people lined up to torture me or was it something else? I still don’t know.”
