Rüzgr Buski; 2016; Germany/Turkey; 60 min.; in Turkish with English subtitles 

In 2013, while this documentary about trans sex worker and activist Şevval Kılıç was being filmed, a transformational moment occurred in Istanbul: the Gezi Park protests. What started as a small demonstration aimed at saving a park from government-backed retail developers turned into a multiday occupation, a burgeoning protest movement, and a national display of anger against Turkey’s long-term prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. From Şevval’s involvement with the riots to the subsequent Pride march, viewers are given an up-close look at LGBTI activists’ contributions to the protests and the alliances made across social and political factions.
