My Child (Benim Çocuğum) by Can Candan (2013, 82 min.). What happens when your child comes out of the closet? My Child follows a very courageous and inspiring group of people in Turkey—parents of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals. The documentary follows these passionate individuals as they redefine what it means to be a parent, family, and activist in a conservative, homophobic, and trans-phobic society. Discussion with director follows screening.

Uncle Seref and His Shadow (Seref Amca ve Golgesi) by Bugra Dedeoglu (2013, 15 min.). Seref and his grandson—who notices that his grandfather casts no shadow—try to catch his fleeing image. Discussion with director follows screening.
