About a boycott at Istanbul Film Festival 2015
Actually I planned to travel to this amazing city to shoot a little documentary about the Kurdish-German film production company "mitosfilm" and its owner, the writer and producer Mehmet Aktas, who returned to his home country Turkey for the first time after 21 years. His latest motion picture "Memories on Stone" (directed by Shawkat Amin Korki) was supposed to be screened within the international competition section. But then, in the beginning of the second week of the festival, a censorship scandal by the Turkish authorities took its course.
